Ireland Meets Japan-W.B. Yeats, Lafcadio Hearn and Kyogen
Smock Alley Theatre, Tuesday 25th July 2017
W.B. Yeats was inspired by Kyogen and Noh, Japanese theatre forms, to produce some of his finest work. Lafcadio Hearn was the Irishman accepted and revered by the Japanese people emerging from centuries of isolation.
These literary links between the two nations foreshadowed the official ties of respect and affection that are celebrated this year, marking 60 years of diplomatic relations.
