Zeami (1364 – 1443), who in the 15th century developed Japanese N?otheatre into an autonomous art form, not only wrote many N?o-plays but also developed a theoretically complex aesthetics of the N?o-theatre. On the basis of his text Kakyo (flower mirror), the lecture will show the importance of the body in N?o-plays. Here it will be clear that a developed body perception simultaneously means the development of a spiritual dimension. In N?o-plays it is a question of creating a shared feeling (kan) between actors, musicians and spectators, with the breathing atmosphere (ki) playing a special role.
