|Dance Expression East and West
|A demonstration comparing noh and contemporary dance. Recording made on Nov. 21, 2013, at a workshop held at the University of Oxford. Two brief performances of the concluding dance of the noh play Yamamba (Mountain Crone), expressing the dancer’s reactions to the four seasons.
|3D Animation of Noh Movement
|This archive presents the findings of a joint research project on noh performance by the Noh Theatre Research Institute and the Department of Engineering and Design, Hosei University. Noh dances are composed of temporal sequences of movement units described in documents called kata-tsuke. This research presents an approach using motion capture to synthesize noh dances as 3-D animations aligned in a time sequence. (This requires the 3Unity3D animation viewer for dance and movement elements.)
