Hanjo


Based on a 14th-century noh play with the same title, Hanjo, by provocative Japanese author Yukio Mishima (1925-1970), is a timeless tale of love, loneliness and betrayal. New York’s beloved SITI Company unveils Mishima’s story as a bilingual triptych in which the actors rotate through each character role. The production weaves noh theater’s elegance, expressiveness and economy, together with techniques of contemporary theater, to shed light on identity, gender, language, and ultimately the art of acting. Performed in English and Japanese.

Part of the NOH-NOW Series
Following the much acclaimed NOH-NOW performance series that Japan Society presented during our 2007 centennial celebration, we are proud to showcase a new NOH-NOW series to mark our 110th anniversary. This edition offers four new productions by today's most celebrated artists who continue to draw inspiration from Japan's centuries-old noh tradition.
