  • Exhibition Summary:
    Noh is one of the most traditional of Japanese art forms.
    It is similar to European opera or America musicals in that a story is told through song and dance, accompanied by the music of the flute and drum.
    In this exhibition, the classic Noh masks of a young woman, elderly man and ogre are displayed. These very masks are used in actual Noh plays.
    It is said that Noh-masks, with their smiling, sorrowful, intense and angry countenances, provide a way for the Japanese to express their feelings.
    New styles of Noh masks like the "Obama Sisters" and "Mona Lisa" are also displayed, which were created using traditional Noh mask-crafting techniques.
    Mr. Gensho Higuchi, a modern Noh-mask artist, produced all of these exhibited works.
