Artists from San Francisco-based Theater of Yugen will introduce students to four genres of traditional Japanese theater--the highly stylized Noh musical theater form, Kyogen classical comic theater, the melodramatic Kabuki, and Bunraku, a highly sophisticated form of puppetry. The workshop includes learning about the structure of the Noh stage, costumes and masks, and movements and key vocabulary terms in Japanese.
