Matthew Shores, University Lecturer in Japanese, has been asked to return to Kyoto this summer to direct the 32nd annual Traditional Theater Training (T.T.T.) 2016, held at the Kyoto Art Center.
T.T.T. is a three-week summer intensive training program that introduces the traditional arts of Noh, Kyogen, and Nihonbuyō. The program is based on the practice-recital approach, and aims to allow participants from all over the world to learn the skills and spirit of traditional performing arts.
This year’s program is scheduled to begin in late July and end in early August. Application will be open from February 2016 and discounts are given to early applications, students, and artists.
