About the author

Alexandre Mathieu Motokiyo Ferran is a former actor of the Theatre du Soleil. Together with Ariane Mnouchkine, he became aware of different art forms originating from Asia, and in particular the Japanese Noh theatre. Fifteen years have gone by – during which he has never ceased to work on this art form in an attempt to understand how on a Noh stage death is portrayed as a true experience, and not just as an event that is enacted. To begin with, he adapted a number of Zeami’s texts (1363-1443, the theorist of Noh drama) for a French speaking public. Later, he travelled to Japan several times to study the music, the singing and dance specific to the Noh theatre. It was during a visit to Japan that he encountered Zen Buddhism, an encounter that enabled him to understand the relationship between the theatre and the sacred, between the living and the dead.
