Online: Noh Chanting Workshop: Revitalize With Noh
Center your mind with deep breath and vocalization.
Revitalize your energy.
Blossom your heart!
This traditional art form consisting of music, dance, and drama was established in 14th century Japan. Noh’s aesthetics and expressions are highly influenced by Zen Buddhism.
In modern times Noh is commonly thought of as a performance art. In medieval Japan Noh was also said to be practiced for physical training as well as for mindfulness, to cultivate awareness of the moment, to survive and live well in turbulent periods through teachings from Noh plays.
In these two session workshops, Mayo Miwa will guide people who are new to Noh, to experience a Noh chanting Utai, using deep breath and internal core muscle with the auspicious and famous play “Takasago” 高砂.
Let’s center your body and revitalize your energy with Noh chanting! Refresh your mind and body to start a new day and the New Year of 2021!
