In this performance at a Noh theater, seeing people, people who have trouble seeing and people unable to see can all enjoy the sound of classical language via Japan’s very own traditional performing art traditions, Noh and Kodan. This performance under the common theme of “children’s feelings towards their parents” and “cherry blossom” will feature the Noh piece “Yuya” by Kanze style Noh performer Keigo Suzuki, and the Kodan “Shushikizakura (Cherry Blossoms of Shushiki) ” by Orine Kanda, a kodanshi (professional storyteller).
From his position as a professional Noh performer, Ichinokai’s representative director Keigo Suzuki widely popularizes the traditional Japanese performing art of Noh, both in Japan and overseas, through Noh performances and events designed to promote and educate. The aim is to pass down Noh culture, and promote culture and academic study, education, welfare, and regional/community revitalization through Noh.
