Blue Moon Over Memphis is a Noh performance about one of the first global celebrity casualties, Elvis Presley, that explores the relationship between celebrity and humanity. One of the oldest continuing stage arts, Noh combines highly stylized dance, chant, music, mask and costume with intense inner concentration and physical discipline.
