Full: Noh and Kunqu Opera

Performing Arts - Dance | November 12 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Jubilith Moore performs song and dance excerpts from Japanese Noh, highlighting the wide spectrum of female characters: an angel risking death to teach the lesson of compassion; a mother searching for her son and driven mad by her loss; and a mother who sacrifices herself for the sake of her son’s future. Drawing from a different East Asian theatrical tradition, Chinese actress Sabrina Hou presents excerpts from Chinese Kunqu operas The Peony Pavilion and The Story of Jade Hairpin.
