Unveiling the mysteries of Nohgaku
Central Stage
Category: Culture, Museums
Noh, or Nohgaku (能楽) is one of the cultural treasures of medieval Japan. A form of theatre largely devised by the Father/Son partnership of Kan'ami and Zeami at the Court of Ashikaga Yoshimitsu in the 13th century. At its heart, Noh is a symbolic drama colored by the aesthetics and quiet elegance of the concept of yugen (幽玄Lit: “elusive beauty”). Its subjects are taken from history, religious ritual or classical literature, and it is structured around song and dance. Daisen City's Maharoba Noh Theatre was built in the 1990s on the site of one of the region's most important shrines, the theatre is laid out in the classic form, and hosts regular performances of professional troupes from all over Japan - including the famous Kanze Clan, the family which Zeami himself founded.
