A distinctive feature of classical Japanese Noh drama is its use of masks. Highly valued as art objects, they are also brought to vivid life on stage. This talk will focus on the use of Noh masks in performance, referencing related masks and paintings at Mia, and will feature a demonstration of how Noh masks work on stage.
