3rd Next Generation’s Roundtable in TOKYO (NGRT)
AJS’s monthly Next Roundtable invited Ms. Soraya Umewaka, young woman Noh player. Her father belongs to 600 years old Noh family and her mother is from Lebanon. She herself graduated from Princeton and works at Google and performs Noh while being at the same time a movie director. Soraya-san explained clearly what Noh is to those who knew nothing about it. Participants discussed in English at 5 tables how to make Noh more popular to young people. With her smile and talks, Soraya-san enchanted the people gathered.
