Kasuga Shrine Noh Theatre Performance

The annual bonfire Noh performances held at the event of Earth Celebration

This is a pre-event at Earth Celebration 2018. Sado, where Zeami (a playwright and performer who developed Noh theatre to perfection) was exiled and the first Deputy was a former Noh actor, has a long history of Noh theatre. One third of all Noh stages in Japan can be found in Sado. Sado is an unparalleled place for Noh theatre, which is deeply rooted in the daily lives of the people. Enjoy the annual, special Takigi Noh performances this summer, too!
