The 3rd edition of Noh Reimagined festival explored how the natural world is celebrated and interpreted in one of Japan’s oldest theatrical traditions, alongside what it means to our lives today. From the flower spirits and nature poetry of classical Noh to contemporary visual art and dance, UK artists and Japanese Noh performers came together to celebrate Noh’s 650-year lineage alongside present-day creativity, and the magic of the natural world.
The two-day programme of Noh Reimagined 2022 welcomed 1,500 audience members who enjoyed performances, workshops, and seminars. We presented classical Noh pieces including Han-Noh (the second half Noh pieces) of Fuji and Kurozuka as well as three ambitious world premieres and one UK premiere.
