The Art Research Center (ARC) is pleased to announce that a video of the "Katayama Noh Online Special Performance" held on September 5, 2020, at the Nagoya Noh Theater has been released and will be available on YouTube until October 10, 2021.
The ARC has been closely working with the Katayama Family Foundation for the Preservation of Noh and Traditional Kyoto Dance to film and digitally archive their performances for more than 20 years.
With the changes in the global environment in 2020, the world of classical performing arts has also entered a phase of exploring new methods for disseminating performances.
To address the issue of how to promote classical Japanese performing arts to the world amid a global pandemic, the Katayama Family Foundation for the Preservation of Noh and Traditional Kyoto Dance and the ARC have been conducting practical research on the topic "Study on the Effective Promotion of Noh Theater to the Global Audience (能楽の効果的な世界にむけた発信に関する研究)".
This research project is one of the FY 2020 Adopted Joint Research Projects (International Joint Research to Utilize the Center's Facilities and Equipment) of the International Joint Digital Archiving Center for Japanese Art and Culture (ARC-iJAC).
The video represents one of the research achievements of this project.
