On May 11, the Consulate General of Vancouver is presenting Noh actor Yamai Tsunao of the Konparu School of Noh. Yamai-san came to Vancouver last year and offered a very informative program about the music, movement, and costumes of Noh. The highlight of the night was perhaps the end of the program, when he invited the audience to join him and his troupe on the stage to try their hands at the instruments, touch the costumes, try on the masks, and speak informally with the performers.
This year's program will follow a similar format (although I don't know to what extent the audience will be able to participate hands-on this time). I will be assisting with the program as M.C./interpreter again for this year's show, so I hope to see you there!
The lecture/demonstration is free and open to the public. Please click on the image for the complete details and to see a larger version of the poster.
