Keio Plaza Hotel hosts a special exhibition of the Japanese traditional performing art called Noh in cooperation with the National Noh Theatre, which commemorates the 35th anniversary of its founding in September. It focuses on the stories about tragic women and their love and jealousy. Traditional carved wooden Noh masks, intricately woven Noh costumes, and other related artistic props are displayed.
Emotions of Woman Expressed Through Noh
“Noh” performing arts reflect the timeless and unchanging characteristics of human psychology and destiny. The play performed this year “Aoi No Ue” portrays the mixed emotions of love and jealousy of a woman who falls in love with a married man, and demonstrates the beauty of traditional “Noh” masks and costumes.
Noh Demonstration in the Lobby (Complimentary)
The unique opportunity to see the classic stage art up close will be during a free Noh demonstration in the Main Lobby. In this short 20 minutes demonstration, Teruhisa Ohshima of the Kitaryu School of “Noh” will perform these complimentary performances and provide commentary on “Noh”.
