This amazing and very rare exhibition offers a unique panorama of this millennial art. From Indian theatre costumes to Japanese nô kimonos and masks, and from Peking opera dresses to South-East Asian shadow theatre, an entire world of deities, animals and characters is brought to life. The exhibition explores the epic and dramatic aspects that characterize the immense variety of different Asian theatrical productions. It culminates with a contemporary interpretation of theatrical traditions through an astonishing presentation of Itchiku Kubota landscape kimonos in which the costume becomes an important element of stage design.
An exceptional visit we wanted to share with you – enjoy!
