Noh

Noh is a musical and dance drama performed in many pieces (story dramas) to the accompaniment of Utai (songs and lines) and Hayashi (musical instrument), and is characterized by performers wearing masks called Noh masks.

The characters are not only human but also non-earthly things such as gods, ogres, monsters and ghosts.

The performers express their emotions with simple and stylized movements.
