  • Overview

    Japanese theater has a lot of examples in its long history. This course serves as an introduction to the history, social background, narrative and structural aspects of theatrical art in Japan. It will help students who have no background knowledge of the subject matter, to see the film of stage performance from a variety of different positions, and provide the student with several opportunities to go to the theater in Tokyo to see the live performances and its surrounding culture from which deeper understanding of performing arts might be built.
