Interested in learning more about Japanese Noh theater? Join us for a free video screening of a classic Noh play, "The Robe of Feathers" (Hagoromo). This is a rare opportunity to learn more about this mysterious and moving art form.

The Robe of Feathers is one of the most popular Noh plays in the Noh repertoire. The central figure is a celestial maiden who appears by a row of pine trees at Miho Beach to teach a lesson of compassion to a fisherman. You will also be introduced to vocal techniques utilized in Noh. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks!

The screening is part of a series in April and May, presenting four classic Noh plays that inspired "This Lingering Life," a new play by Chiori Miyagawa premiering at San Francisco's Z Space in June. For more information about the series, visit: http://www.theatreofyugen.org/?spec=137
