Shijimagoto (無言事)

One type of Noh production, literally “no-word things.” Typically, the parts accompanying the vocals and music include only movement. The movement of the actors comes into sharp focus in the dead silence of the stage, creating a unique atmosphere. There are Shijimagoto denoted as su no de, su no nakairi, and su no ayumi, but these are very rare.
