Japanese Theatre Today
  • Japanese theatre today has not changed much since
    the early performances

7
Noh?
  • It is performed since the 14th century
  • It later influenced other drama forms such
  • as Kabuki
  • According to Zeami who brought Noh, all
  • Noh should create an aesthetic ideals called
    Yugen(subtle) and performed spirit and
    Hana(novelty).

8
Mask
  • Noh is unique its slow and its use of distinctive
    masks
  • All masks have names
  • Usually only Shite, the main player, takes the
    mask. However in some cases the Tsure may also
    take mask particularly for female roles. The Noh
    masks are used to portray a female or nonhuman
    character (divine, demon, animal)

9
Stage
  • Noh play takes place on a stage made of Hinoki
    wood (cypress)
  • Stage is bare with the exception of the
    kagamiita, a painting of pine tree at the back
    of the stage.

10
  • Another unique features of the stage is the
    Higashigakari, the narrow bridge to the left of
    the stage that the principal actors use to enter
    the stage

11
Costumes
  • In contrast to the unadorned stage, costumes are
    lavish. Especially those in the Shite role wear
    rich silk brocades.

12
Kabuki???
  • ? sing
  • ? dance
  • ? skill
  • Therefore sometimes it translated as
  • the art of singing and dancing

13
History
  • The history of Kabuki began in 1603 when Okuni
    who called herself a priestess began performing a
    new style of dance drama in Kyoto. Female
    performers played both men and women. It was bout
    ordinary life. The style was instantly popular.
    Rival troupes quickly formed and Kabuki was born
    as ensemble dance drama performed by women. Much
    of its appeal in this era was due to the ribald,
    suggestive performances put on by many of the
    imitators these actresses were often available
    for prostitution.

14
Stage
  • Kabuki stage and theaters have steadily become
    more technologically sophisticated and
    innovations including revolving stages and trap
    doors.
  • The kabuki stage features a projection called
    Hanamichi (??literally flower path) which is a
    walkway extends into the audience and via which
    dramatic entranced exits are made.
