Greetings from Tokyo!

Kimberly is in Tokyo! Over the next month, Kimberly will be studying and researching Noh theatre in Tokyo, Kyoto and Sado.

This past week, she participated in Theatre Nohgaku's 2018 Writer's Workshop. Led by Theatre Nohgaku Artistic Director, Richard Emmert, the workshop explored Noh structure and guided participants through creating their own English language Noh. As a result, Kimberly is currently developing a new Noh based on the New England folklore she loved as a child. Stay tuned!
