Theatre Nohgaku Writers' Workshop 2010

Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas

Theatre Nohgaku (TN) is pleased to announce its 8th Annual Writers' Workshop, to be held at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas April 2-4, 2010. Led by TN founder and artistic director Richard Emmert, the workshop will familiarize participants with the structure of classical noh, Japan’s 650-year-old traditional stage art. Mr. Emmert will be assisted by TN founding member John Oglevee.
The Writers’ Workshop began in Tokyo in 2003 and has since alternated annually between Japan and the United States. The workshop is an important part of TN’s mission as a multi-national theatre company championing the creation and performance of new English-language noh. Two noh plays in TN’s repertory are a direct result of the workshop: Pagoda by 2008 workshop participant Jannette Cheong, featured in TN’s just completed European tour, and Pine Barrens by 2003 participant and TN member Greg Giovanni, featured in TN’s 2006 Southeast U.S. tour.
The three-day workshop will cover all aspects of noh but will focus particularly on introducing its complex structural layering of spoken text and how it is integrated with music and dance. Participants will also view noh videos to better understand these structural characteristics.
This workshop benefits playwrights, poets and other interested wordsmiths. Past workshops have been attended by composers, dancers, actors and literature and theatre scholars including award-winning playwrights Erik Ehn, Ruth Margraff and Deborah Brevoort as well as composer/lyricist Eric Schorr, poet Lee Ann Brown and actor/director Tony Torn.
The total cost of the workshop is $150 USD. Participants with little or no background in noh theatre should prepare by reading translations from Royall Tyler’s “Japanese Noh Dramas” published by Penguin Classics.
Currently registered university students are invited to participate for $75, a 50% discount. SMU students only can participate for $20.
Cost does NOT include transportation, accommodation or food.
The workshop is limited to 15 participants, with a nonrefundable deposit of $50 ($20 for students) due March 1. The remaining amount is due March 25. If more than 15 apply, a waiting list will be created.
