Using the images and material we went over in class and on the websiteLinks to an external site. (see below) choose a mask, wig, and costume (colors, patterns, split pants or not) that you would use for the main character in the Noh play Yamamba in the second half of the play (the nochi-jite).

Explain your costuming choices based on your interpretation of the character of Yamamba in the play. Is she young, middle-aged, or old? Is she demonic or benign? A deity? How powerful is she? Make sure you support your choices with quotations from the play.

Illustrate! Feel free to print out images, draw, or otherwise create your own version of Yamamba.
