Japanese Noh Theater turned into 3D Live Theater! Amon Miyamoto's "YU GEN" to premiere in Singapore!
The world's first 3D live theater featuring Japanese Noh theater from the 14th century! Conceived & directed by Amon Miyamoto, "YU GEN - Hidden Beauty of Japan -" premieres in Singapore in October 2016!
Noh is one of the oldest theatrical forms in the world and perhaps the most refined among Japan's traditional performing arts. For the first time in history, "YU GEN" combines the traditional Noh performance with the latest 3D technology, as well as an original story, to create a completely new and unique experience for the modern day audience.
The audience is given special 3D glasses that are shaped like a Noh mask, which enable them to explore and experience Japan’s spiritual world together with the characters in the play.
"YU GEN" features live performances of famous Noh plays "Shakkyo (The Stone Bridge)" and "Hagoromo (The Feather Robe)" by Kanze Noh performers.
The world premiere performances will take place at the Singapore River Nights Festival on October 28th & 29th at the Asian Civilization Museum's outdoor stage (http://acm.org.sg).
