Reading of Noh drama ‘Between The Stones’ | Dublin
On Sunday, 23rd September, we were delighted to welcome Jannete Cheong, London based poet, writer, designer and curator, and the first British person to write an English-language Noh, to Dublin for an afternoon of reading of new Noh drama ‘Between The Stones’.
Event took place and was hosted by Royal Hibernian Academy, and was attended by IJA members, representatives of Embassy of Japan in Ireland and general public.
It was a great opportunity to everyone interested in Japanese culture and arts to learn about Noh and its development from ‘page to stage’. Event also helped to build new relationships and share ideas and learning through cultural and educational engagement both inside and outside the world of Noh.
Noh is classical Japanese theatre which combines elements of dance, drama, music and poetic text into a highly aesthetic for or art and uses elaborate costumes and exquisitely carved wooden masks.

IJA would like to thank Jannette Cheong and everyone at the ‘Between The Stones’ project, RHA for hosting this event and everyone who attended. Thank you!
