The Prince cometh – WAttention's Kabuki-Noh Ticket Giveaway!

When one talks about Japanese Performing Arts, it’s impossible to not mention 2 of the biggest classics – Kabuki and Noh.

Kabuki, being essentially Japanese Opera, is well-known for its elaborate costumes, stages and props. But what truly makes it stand out is how every single action performed at a Kabuki is highly stylised and exaggerated.

Every step, jerk, swagger and word uttered is done in a deliberately over-the-top manner that’s definitely memorable and attention-grabbing.

Noh1

Noh is without a doubt, one of Japan’s oldest forms of performing arts. It is meticulous and careful, with every single element from the stage to the floors crafted to ensure that every performance is as effective as possible.

Noh’s most characteristic element is of course, the masks that every performer dons. Coming in a wide variety of designs from simple to elaborate, these Noh masks represent various characters and even emotions.

One of Japan’s most prolific performing arts actors is Ebizo Ichikawa XI. As his name implies, he is the Eleventh member of the prestigious Ichikawa clan to inherit the name of Ebizo.

05

Charismatic, talented and bold, he is the Producer of JAPAN THEATER; a production that aims to bring Japanese Performing Arts to the world in innovative new ways.

What new ways you may ask?
