Far Out East

See some Japanese theater in Deep Ellum

 NOH—Angels, Demons and Dreamers is the new project by critically lauded performance artists Fred Curchack and Laura Jorgensen, known far and wide as purveyors of strange and wonderful theater. The five plays which make up the program—Dream of Katan, Sotoba Komachi, The Bird-Catcher in Hell, Shunkan in Exile and Hagoromo—will be performed in the traditional Japanese Noh style. According to Wikipedia, if they want to go really traditional, this means that the performers shouldn't rehearse together at all, only practicing their parts individually prior to showtime. Sounds like a lot of bands I know. The program will also include Kyogen interludes, a comical form of Japanese theater which acts as a foil to the more somber Noh pieces, which feature, among other things, a pillow that weaves dreams of the future and a bird-catcher who runs into the "Lord of Death." Catch what's sure to be an interesting performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through November 17 at the Undermain Theatre, 3200 Main St. Tickets are $15 for Thursdays, $20 for Fridays and $25 for Saturdays. Call 214-747-5515 or visit undermain.org.
Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8:15 p.m. Starts: Nov. 1. Continues through Nov. 17, 2007
