Between the stones: Getting to Noh from Page to Stage


Between the stones: Getting to Noh from Page to Stage

You are invited to attend an Illustrative Talk & Reading of the new noh drama ‘Between The Stones’ on 23rd September 2018.

This is phase one of a three-phase project. It will provide an opportunity for an up-close understanding of Noh from ‘page to stage’ and will be of interest to those engaged in, or fascinated by, Japanese arts and culture. The whole project will also build new relationships and share ideas and learning through cultural and educational engagement both inside and outside the world of Noh.

Date: Sunday, 23rd September 2018
Time: 2.30 – 4.30 PM
Venue: RHA, Royal Hibernian Academy, 15 Ely Place, Dublin 2

‘Noh’ is classical Japanese theatre which combines elements of dance, drama, music and poetic text into a highly aesthetic form of art that has been performed continuously for 650 years. In contrast to its minimalist stage, noh uses elaborate costumes and exquisitely carved wooden masks.

This Illustrated talk and reading is designed to introduce audiences to the key elements of noh and to have a close up and interactive experience of how a new noh is developed from page to stage.

The new noh ‘Between the Stones’ brings together three iconic Japanese cultural forms (noh, karesansui gardens and furin wind chimes). It was written following the deaths of family members and a mentor and friend close to the author. The piece explores how the burden of grief turns into an understanding and celebration of life, death, friendship, beauty and love; as well as the transformative power of gardens to nurture and heal the soul…

The author of this two-act English language noh drama, Jannette Cheong, will share her experience of noh and how a new noh is developed from the poetic text in preparation for a stage production.

This is the third noh performing arts collaboration between Jannette Cheong and Richard Emmert following the acclaimed success of Pagoda (European Tour – London, Dublin, Oxford, Paris 2009, Asia Tour – Tokyo, Kyoto, Beijing, Hong Kong 2011) and Opposites-InVerse (London 2017) .

To book your place, please RSVP by Monday, 17th September by email: aW5mbyB8IGlqYSAhIGll or call: 01-6787008.
