In addition, within the framework of this event, a press briefing will take place at the Gallery of Fine Arts of Uzbekistan at 14:30 on October 18 and at 15:00 a lecture by Mr. Katsumi on the theme: "Stage Arts of the Noh Theater".
The Noh Theater, originated in the XIV century, is one of the ancient Japanese traditional arts, included in the list of intangible cultural heritage of UNESCO. Until now, the tradition of the Noh theater has remained unchanged, and this also reveals the uniqueness of both the genre itself and the Japanese worldview and attitudes toward art.
Traditional Noh theater is a harmonious combination of dance, rhythm, music with rustles, poses and character movements. In it, every sound, gesture plays a role. There is nothing superfluous in the presentation. Actors for conveying their opinions to the public use a special technique of interweaving singing, recitative, shouting and reading.
Artist of the ancient traditional art of Japan, Mr. Katsumi, in his performances under the mask through movements and gestures accompanied by music, will introduce Uzbek audiences to Japanese plays "Hagoromo" (Feather Cape) and "Tsuchigumo" (Terrestrial Spider), narrating about a person's attitude towards nature and the God, as well as human feelings and dignity. In addition, under the program, Mr. Katsumi prepared a dedication to the memory of the great poet Alisher Navoi, which gave the name of the current event.
