We’re pleased to present Snow, a twenty-minute sound piece we are developing inspired by the restless spirits in Japanese Noh Theatre.
Featuring the voice of legendary New York performer Peggy Shaw and the flute of virtuoso Yukihiro Isso, words and music unlock the world of a traveller who finds herself thrown into darkness under the snow. In this poetic monologue, sung and spoken word are fused as our traveller searches for a reconciliation with the ghosts that haunt her.
Snow will be one of three short pieces shown as part of The Transformative Power of Mugen Noh during Noh Reimagined Festival at Kings Place, London on Saturday 30 June 2018, 7.30pm. Book now.
In a pre-show talk, Suzy Willson and Paul Clark will talk about their recent visit to Japan and how meeting Noh musicians and actors and watching performances in Tokyo and Kyoto has influenced the making of Snow. Tickets are free but registration is required. Book now.
