    DescriptionNoh plays invite us to witness and experience the salvation of souls. The Japanese-born performing art, Noh combines dance, drama, music and poetry influenced by Zen philosophy. With a 600-year history, it is the world's oldest performing art and designated an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. Beautifully photographed with thirty Noh stories selected from among the few hundred stories still performed throughout Japan today, this volume pursues the subtle, profound aesthetics and visionary qualities of Noh.
