Noh theatre is a Japanese dance theatre form from 14th century, and respected as a "living museum" of a Japanese theatre art - that otherwise could have been banished in the past.
Noh theatre is consisted of the (mask) dance, chanting and instrumental music. The dance and the music is so formal that they don't even do rehearsals - though the music is quite flexible in its tempo and expression.

Born as the eldest daughter of Hōshō Shite (leading) actor Takashi Takeda, Isa Takeda studied Noh under Kazufusa Hōshō as well as Akira Takahashi and Takashi Takeda. She debuted on the Noh stage in the play Kenjō in 1994. She graduated with a master’s degree from the Music Department of Tokyo University of the Arts. During her studies at university, she was the recipient of the Ataka Award and Arkansas Music award.

NOH+DENMARK consists of several events which presents Noh, the classical Japanese theatre with a history of more than 650 years, in Denmark. This project is jointly organised by Isa Takeda (JP), Simon Roy Christensen (DK), and Yukiko Nakayama (JP), since 2017.
As the Noh theatre itself remains a largely unknown and rarely performed art form in Denmark, NOH+DENMARK aims to introduce the rich and multifaceted tradition of Noh through a series of performances and workshops which could present the art of Noh from a variety of perspectives.
