  • About the Book
  • How do classical, highly codified theatre arts retain the interest of today's audiences and how do they grow and respond to their changing circumstances? The eight essays presented here examine the contemporary relevance and significance of the “classic” No and Kyogen theatre to Japan and the West. They explore the theatrical experience from many perspectives–those of theatre, music, dance, art, literature, linguistics, philosophy, religion, history and sociology.
