【Available for 1 year】Free online video streaming of "An Evening of Noh and Kyogen"December 24, 2020(Thu)
Every year in autumn, The Japan Foundation Kyoto Office organizes an event called "An Evening of Noh and Kyogen" to give people an opportunity to experience traditional Japanese culture, inviting international students, Japan Foundation Fellows, and those enrolled at the Japanese-Language Institute, Kansai to join in this event.
This year, however, the outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in travel restrictions, making it difficult for students and scholars of Japanese Studies abroad to come to Japan.
To minimize the risk of virus transmission, the Japan Foundation Kyoto Office will take a new approach to this year's event in cooperation with the Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University, by filming the productions without an audience and releasing the video to the public free of charge for one year from December 24, 2020, at 14:00.
