Who better to talk about the staging of productions than the director of the Sydney Festival Lieven Bertels? To continue our exploration into Japan’s nō and kyōgen theatre traditions we will hear from Lieven, who has previously staged nō, kyōgen and kabuki theatre performances at the Holland Festival in Amsterdam. Hear about this extraordinary undertaking and whether he might include such theatre in Sydney’s program. Then drop-in and participate in our origami art-making activity while listening to the lovely sounds of Guivio Duo.
