October 29  – December 17, 2016
Opening: October 29, 7 to 9 pm

Kabuki, Noh and Bunraku are all types of theater-each distinct, all indispensable in the Japanese tradition of dramatic expression.

With over 400 woodblock prints and vintage photographs on the subject, the Williamson Gallery of Scripps College is well able to feature all three forms of performance in On Stage: Japanese Theater Prints and Costumes (Kabuki, Bunraku & Noh).

Costumes and masks will be included in the exhibition, which opens Oct. 29 and runs through Dec. 17, 2016.

The opening at the Williamson, from 7 to 9 pm, features live music and light refreshments. The event is open to the public and admission is free.

This show is part of a greater celebration of Noh theater at Scripps and Pomona Colleges, with several events taking place at Scripps on Oct. 29, such as a Noh panel at the Clark Humanities Museum at 1 pm and Noh performance at Scripps Balch Auditorium at 3 pm.

That same day, Imagined Sceneries, a musical work by Dr. Koji Nakano featuring voice, koto, percussion and electronic soundscapes will be performed at Scripps Clark Humanities Museum from 4:45 to 5:15 pm, followed by a reception.

These events are open to the public and admission is free.
