Curatorial > Theatre Nohgaku

Noh is one of the world’s oldest forms of stage performance, and Theatre Nohgaku is an international company dedicated to preserving and sharing its beauty and power by performing new and traditional works in both English and Japanese. By exploring theatrical possibilities across cultural and language boundaries, the company’s mission is “to create a theatre for the twenty-first century, opening vital new channels for contemporary expression.” In February of 2019, Newfields hosted Theatre Nohgaku, presenting a rare opportunity to see this traditional Japanese art form in the galleries alongside monumental works of contemporary art.
