Gallery director Michael Brand introduces our new Japanese exhibition
Open until 10pm
- Slide 1
- Slide 2
Over the coming weeks, Art After Hours will delve into Japan’s oldest theatre tradition – nō and kyōgen. We commence with a special talk inside the Theatre of dreams, theatre of play exhibition by Gallery director Dr Michael Brand. Michael promises to reveal which are his favourite works on display. Then, as nō is often referred to as ‘Japanese opera’, it is fitting that we will hear from Opera Australia’s award-winning costume designer Julie Lynch. Julie has worked with some of Australia’s best known directors. She will talk about some of her favourite productions and explain the importance of costume and set design in telling such stories.
