Growth Of Japanese Culture
A Golden Age Of Literature And Drama By: Payton Veach
Japanese people performed Shinto's in religious places called Shrines. One of the types of drama was Noh, Noh plays were based off of legends and folktales. Actors in the play had painted masks on to show emotion. The producers and actors were all men.
Another type of drama was the Kabuki. Kabuki was based off of melodramatic singing, dancing and bright makeup. This drama was a lot different then Noh. Kabuki's themes were for the common people. Kabuki is also acted by men.
