Noh Reimagined 2018: Sublime Illusions   org

After the success of Noh Reimagined in 2016, we're pleased to accounce its return for 2018 - Noh Reimagined: Sublime Illusions.

This year's edition will showcase Mugen ("phantasmal") Noh - a genre of Noh in which the main actor appears as a ghost in the dream of a travelling monk, who is played by the supporting actor. The ghost then tells the tragic story of its past life, expressing deep regret and lamentations, hoping to find peace through the monk's prayers for it.

Bringing together top Noh performers from Japan with British artists and neuroscientists, join us for this two-day festival, with its interdisciplinary performances, workshops, and talks, to explore time, space, and symbolism in Noh theatre.

Date: 29 June 2018 - 30 June 2018

Kings Place, 90 York Way, London, N1 9AG

Curated and produced by mu:arts and International Noh Project Committee, Tokyo, in partnership with Kings Place, Japan Foundation, and the Noh Theatre Research Institute, Hosei University

A captivating exhibition in which UK based experimental artist, Rie Nakajima fuses sculpture with sound. Best known for her work with sound art, Nakajima often uses a combination of kinetic devices, musical instruments and found objects in direct response to architectural space, and experiments with different mediums in order to probe and raise questions from her audience about the definition of art.

Taking place at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, the exhibition will consist of entirely new work and includes a number of collaborative performances with other artists. This also includes a series of free performances such as her music project O Yama O, with Keiko Yamamoto which explores music with no genre and various other collaborations consisting of dance, free sculpture and much more.
