Events Description

An evening of classical Japanese noh theatre as acclaimed actors Hisa and Hikaru Uzawa lead us through a dramatic tale of the defeat of the warrior Atsumori, a reunion with his enemy, and eventual salvation. Atsumori recounts the Battle of Ichinotani through the eyes of the beautiful youth Atsumori. Living National Treasure Hisa Uzawa and her daughter Hikaru are Kanze Tessenkai noh performers following traditions that date to the 14th century. Their skill and artistry place the Uzawas at the pinnacle of noh practice as two women in a male-dominated profession.
