The Beauty of Noh: Tomoe and Yoshinaka

Less is more

In many ways, there can be no two cultures more different, creating personality styles diametrically opposed to each other, than Japan and the United States. Americans are overly-expressive and compared to us, the Japanese are extremely reserved. This reserved characteristic is noticeable in The Beauty of Noh: Tomoe, currently at ACT Theatre, performed by Munemori Takeda and the combined Kanze, Fukuoh, Kou, Kadono and Issou Schools of Noh.
