Noh Theater

Noh Theater is a form of Japanese drama performed in masks and costumes. Noh performances are traditionally all day and feature a play from each of the five categories; God, Warrior, Woman, Deranged, and Demon. Each category has a specific mask and costume.

The shite performs the main role. The waki plays supporting roles. And the kyogen kata role is to explain the play to the audience.

Noh plays are performed on a square stage with four pillars at its corners and a simple pine tree painted on the back of the stage. A chorus of up to eight members sits at the right side of the stage and the instrumentalists sit at the back of the stage.
