Kings Place, London, Friday 24th – Saturday 25th June 2022
Noh Reimagined 2022: Spirits of Flowers explores how nature is celebrated and interpreted in the Noh tradition and how humans exist within – and as part of – the natural environment. As we adjust to a changing climate, we look to Japan, where people have worshipped nature since ancient times. Noh theatre has deep links to this culture and the kami (deity spirits) that are revered in Japan. These spirits of flowers and plants appear in many Noh stories, interacting with human beings and offering an image of how we might relate to the natural world.
Noh Reimagined 2022: Spirits of Flowers will bring together top-class Noh performers along with UK’s most creative artists including Cerith Wyn Evans,Thick & Tight who will premier their new pieces inspired by the Noh tradition.
Noh Reimagined 2022: Spirits of Flowers will take place on 24th and 25th 2022 at Kings Place, London N1 9AG.
