About this event

There are many examples in traditional Japanese cultural forms that involve intermedia performance, including Noh, Bunraku, and Kabuki. These theatrical genres bring together spoken or sung text, acting, visual staging, costume, movement, and music into true intermedia performances. The international symposium “Performing Intermedia in Japan” focuses on Noh as a prime example. 

The two-day symposium will include an evening lecture and demonstration, Noh as Intermedia, presented by Professor Takanori Fujita along with artists from Japan using excerpts from Noh theater works to demonstrate stylistic characteristics of the genre. This event in Dinkelspiel Auditorium is free and open to the public. The program's details can be viewed here.
