Masquers, the student theater club at Piedmont Virginia Community College, will present “Voice and Movement for the Noh Actor,” a workshop with Matthew R. Dubroff, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday in the college’s Maxwell Theater black box.

Dubroff is Senior Lecturer in Fine Arts at Hampden-Sydney College, and he holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Asian Theater from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. His workshop will explore Japanese Noh theater, which combines dance, song, music and mask work. Style, one of the oldest forms of theater in the world, demands intense focus and physical discipline.

Dubroff began training in Japan with master performers in 1988.

The workshop is free. Pre-registration is recommended, as space is limited, but not required. Wear clean socks and comfortable clothing; shorts are not recommended. No experience is necessary. Send an email to [email protected] or call 961-5246.
