Noh is an expression that captures the essence of
the heart by touching the truth of the human heart, such as “irregularity”,
“sadness” (sorrow), with themes of madness, devotion, spirit, and humanity. It
strictly protects the convention called "type" and puts the heart in
it with an expression that eliminates waste as much as possible.
It is said that “Noh is a play that you feel with
your heart and see with your heart”. Readers are constantly expanding their
imagination within themselves,and feel the world abundantly. That is the world
of Noh. This sophisticated expression cannot be seen in any of the world's
performing arts. I think
this is the essence of Japanese culture.
