Last days of summer in Kyoto! Time to look back at what we have done during the summer. One of the highlights has been an intensive 2-day workshop with New York-based collective Theatre Mitu. The workshop took place in June 2015, at Iori Machiya, in Kyoto. Theatre Mitu periodically organises intensive ‘summer camps’ aimed at exploring non-Western traditions. Participants are both Mitu’s resident artists and also university students – I found this a particularly interesting formula, in which old-timers and perspective professionals can learn from each other.
Michael Littig, one of Theater Mitu’s Japan Artist Intensive programme members, sent us a kind message: “I thought Tatsushige-san was a very direct, clear, and well informed teacher. I found his enthusiasm to be contagious, and I would highly recommend him to any artist who is interested in exploring Japanese Noh.”
We look forward to meeting Theatre Mitu’s again soon!
