 In terms of style, Noh drama is the quintessence of simplicity.
Performed by a handful of players, mostly masked and using minimal props
and exceedingly understated movements, this is theater pared down to
its essentials. Yet, as an art form, Noh drama is highly complex —
richly symbolic, nuanced and exquisite in its austerity.Since the
emergence of Noh drama over six centuries ago, the masks worn by the
actors have been integral to the work. A Noh mask, with its subtle
fusion of the real and the imaginary, is a beautiful object; but it only
comes fully to life when a talented actor is able to transcend the
mask's unchanging expression and convey a wide range of emotions.In
recent years, Noh drama has seen a resurgence in prestige and
popularity, both in Japan and abroad. Today, the masks worn by most Noh
thespians are either old, passed down from generation to generation
within a particular school of acting, or the work of an artist who
specializes in this craft. Only one Noh master-actor continues to make
masks in addition to teaching, writing and performing. Michishige Udaka
is a shite-kata (lead and producer), with a career spanning almost 50
years. As an actor and playwright, he is able to bring to the task of
mask-making a deep understanding both of the character the mask
represents and of the actor's intentions while playing that role. These
insights have enabled Udaka to add greater dimension to his own
performances.The Secrets of Noh Masks presents 32 pieces, a
representative sample of the more than 200 produced to date by the
author. Every one has passed the ultimate test — use in actual
performances — and may be seen on stage today. The stunning photos are
accompanied by captions and essays about the history of Noh, its
performance style, mask-making philosophy and techniques. There is also
an index listing each mask with a thumbnail sketch. Those who
know little of this ancient dramatic form, might assume that Noh masks
lack expression. But the images showcased in this volume reveal an
emotional depth and humanity that is as powerful in the 21st century as
it was over 600 years ago.
