Traditional Japanese Theater 
Atalay O nurM utluer
Noh Theater 
Noh (
) Drama is a "dance-drama" that wasvery popular in the rich and powerful (theelite) of medieval Japan. Noh dramabecame popular with the court in the 14thcentury. It is still performed today. Theactors wear masks and there are musiciansand a chorus which narrates the story bychanting.
Noh Theater 
By tradition, Noh actors and musicians never rehearse for performances together. Instead,each actor, musician, and choral chanter practices his or her fundamental movements,songs, and dances independently or under thetutelage of a senior member of the school.Thus, the tempo of a given performance is notset by any single performer but established bythe interactions of all the performers together.
