Come along and explore the lives of ordinary people of 12th-16th centuries Japan through a live Noh performance.

Noh (能, Nō), a major form of classical Japanese theater performed since the 14th century, and inscribed on UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage List, is "Often based on tales from traditional literature with a supernatural being transformed into human form as a hero narrating a story. Noh integrates masks, costumes and various props in a dance-based performance, requiring highly trained actors and musicians. Emotions are primarily conveyed by stylized conventional gestures while the iconic masks represent the roles such as ghosts, women, children, and the elderly."
