Portland Japanese Garden features “Mirrors of the Mind” | The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun

From Our Sponsors

Mirrors of the Mind: The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun

More info: japanesegarden.org

This fall, the Portland Japanese Garden is hosting 30 hand-carved Noh masks by Ohtsuki Kokun and a selection of elegant brocade costumes from the traditional silk looms of Orinasu-kan in Kyoto bring the elusive world of Noh drama to Portland in the exhibition Mirrors of the Mind: The Noh Masks of Ohtsuki Kokun.

The tradition of Noh dates back to the 14th century and is the most prestigious performing art in Japan. The actors use hand-carved masks that appear nearly featureless at first glance. By artfully tilting the masks as well as channeling the spirit of the character itself, the actors appear to transform themselves into ancient spirits. Arrayed in gorgeous brocade costumes, these masked spirits work out questions of tormented pasts or hidden truths that haunt them in the afterlife.

The exhibition is highlighted by performances by Noh actor Kawamura Haruhisa, who has been designated an Intangible Cultural Asset, during the opening days of the exhibition. A demonstration of Noh mask carving will be presented by Mr. Ohtsuki, who will also be present for exhibition’s opening days.

This aristocratic form of theater art is vastly different from the exuberant peoples’ art form of Kabuki.

Named after the Gion District of Kyoto, Gion Matsuri is said to be the oldest continuous urban festival in the world.

Escapism Portland is proud to introduce our seventh escape room experience: Malice Manor, Portland’s only haunted escape room!

Secrets can be hidden, but never destroyed. This was the harsh lesson learned by the members of the Randle family, whose cursed bloodline came to a tragic and mysterious end nearly a hundred years ago. Since then, tales of ghostly voices, doors that open themselves, and visions of a little girl have haunted the home. The locals call it Malice Manor and avoid it at all costs, though certain brave souls have ventured inside and lived to regret it. Now it’s up to you to unravel the mysteries of the Randle family, and of the child whose soul remains trapped there.

This haunted experience is best suited for 2-10 players. Please visit escapismportland.com for bookings!
