About the Festival
This winter Carleton College offers Visualizing Japanese Theater, an interdisciplinary celebration of Japanese traditions in drama, dance, and visual art. Rooted in centuries-old traditions and buoyed by popular culture, Visualizing Japanese Theater weaves the classic with the contemporary by adapting the highly stylized traditions of Noh and Kabuki with avant-garde expression and exploring visual dimensions of theater culture.
Visualizing Japanese Theater comprises a set of innovative collaborations based on partnerships between academic departments, and between Carleton College and Twin Cities arts organizations. This winter festival provides the campus and regional communities with myriad opportunities to engage and create with distinguished international artists.
