Experience an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind evening at the theatre with Icarus: A New Noh in English, produced by Central Washington University's Central Theatre Ensemble.

In a dynamic fusion of two classical dramatic cultures, the Greek myth, Icarus,is reinterpreted through the unique ritual of Japanese Noh theatre. Award-winning CWU producers and playwrights George Bellah 3 and Elise Forier Edie retell the universal story of youthful arrogance brought to a tragic end, and a father's enduring grief. The powerful juxtaposition of Greek and Japanese traditions illuminates these timeless themes to create an unforgettable theatre experience.

Icarus: A New Noh in English will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 31 at the Center House Theater, Seattle Center. General Admission tickets are $25. Admission price includes a preshow reception. Tickets may be purchased online at www.cwu.edu/theatre/tickets or by calling 509 963-1429.

School Matinee

For more information, contact Scott Robinson, Theatre Arts Chair, scott.robinson@cwu.edu   (509) 963-1273


Production Notes
Bellah has been studying the performance aspects of Noh, a form of classical Japanese dance theatre, with the Noh Training Project since 2008. He has spent considerable time in Japan studying with Noh teachers, including a recent, month-long sojourn in Tokyo.

Forier Edie has won playwriting awards from the Columbia Entertainment Company, the Bonderman/IRT/IUPUI Children's Theatre Symposium, the Seven Devils Playwrights Conference, Artist Trust/Washington State Arts Commission, and others. She has twice been invited to develop her works at the National Playwright's Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center.

Composer Kevin Salfen, from the University of the Incarnate Word (Texas), has created a compelling score that deftly combines Eastern and Western musical motifs and provides a subtle counterpoint to the enduring themes of Icarus.
