      Subject: [pmjs] Theatre Nohgaku US Tour

      Theatre Nohgaku is a new theatre company created two years ago and
      made up largely of Americans who are experienced foreign
      practitioners of Japanese classical noh drama including several who
      have been studying in my on-going Noh Training Project workshops in
      Tokyo and in my intensive summer Noh Training Project workshops in
      Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. The troupe was formed with the idea of
      performing noh in English and the first tour of the company will take
      place in September. Theatre of Yugen of San Francisco is producing
      this tour. The feature play to be performed is W.B. Yeats' "At the
      Hawk's Well," the most significant non-Japanese written play which
      has found itself into the noh repertory as a shinsaku (newly
      composed) noh. Theatre Nohgaku will not be performing the Japanese
      version but a version based on Yeats' original English text with
      music and direction by me. Japanese noh hayashi instrumentalists will
      accompany the performance and Noh master performer Akira Matsui will
      take the lead role of the Hawk. All other roles including the chorus
      members will be played by Theatre Nohgaku performers. Also on the
      program will be short shimai dances from other English noh plays, a
      short noh hayashi instrumental piece, and the kyogen Bo-shibari (Tied
      to a Stick) played by Theatre of Yugen members and directed by Yuriko
      Doi. The following is the tour schedule. Please feel free to print it
      out and post it or send it on to any interested parties. Thank you.
