Originating in the 14th century in Japan, Noh is a form of theatre involving music, dance and drama. It is the oldest major theatre art that is still performed today and incorporates masks, costumes and various props, in a dance based performance.

IFAC has hosted or supported a multitude events across the globe, at spectacular venues such as the United Nations, the Great Sphinx of Giza, Angkor Wat and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
