Japanese Noh drama is one of the great art forms that has fascinated people throughout the world. The late Yukio Mishima, one of Japan’s outstanding post-war writers, infused new life into the form by using it for plays that preserve the style and inner spirit of Noh and are at the same time so modern, so direct, and intelligible that they could, as he suggested, be played on a bench in Central Park. Here are five of his Noh plays – Komachi, The Damask Drum, Kantan, Hanjo and The Lady Aoi, stunning in their contemporary nature and relevance.

In collaboration with Diploma in Dance and School of Contemporary Music, featuring Level 2 students from the BA(Hons) Acting Programme in collaboration with Diploma in Technical and Production Management and Diploma in Audio Production.
