Noh, a classical Japanese theatrical performance for the aristocratic.
Go into a "Japan" area of any major museum and you are bound to see a section of Japanese Noh masks. So beautifully sculpted and delicate looking, but eerie at the same time. The movie "The Mask" with Jim Carrie tends to come to mind whenever we see one. There's got to be some type of mystical powers in these masks...
because the way they come to life when they're worn brings people speechless.
These elaborate masks are worn during a traditional Japanese theatrical performance.
When most people hear "Japanese performance", most people think of Kabuki.
While both having long cultural history and being a part of the Japanese arts,
there are a few big things that differentiate the two. Do you know what those characteristics are??
