Join Nobu in support of Sharing the beauty of Japan’s Noh drama with Seattle audiences
Please use your $10 to support Munenori's Challenge!
Please support a young Noh performer Munenori Takeda who has kept working to popularize Noh to the world. He had held one man Noh workshops all over Japan since 2008 at his own expense. Gradually he got his supporters. Some supporters offered free places for his workshops and other supporters told everybody about his activity. Then finally his workshop went overseas to Seattle and five other cities in North America last year.
This year Munenori is trying to perform in both a classical Noh play “Tomoe” with his fellow Noh-performers and an epoch-making collaboration “Yoshinaka” with Seattle’s acclaimed opera composer, Garrett Fisher.
My hope is that a lot of my friends say “Yes!” to support and put their $10 and more to this project from this site.
