This article is about the inner transformation of the 'shite' - the main actor in Japanese classical 'Noh' theatre, and about the three dimensions of the 'yugen' experience - the 'secret of beauty, charm', the fundamental concept of 'Noh' aesthetics. Basing himself on a play by titled 'Teika', the author demonstrates how aesthetic, epistemological and metaphysical distance, making 'yugen' possible, are theatralicalised. Following Steve Odin, the author also addresses the psychological aspect of cognitive detachment (both of the actor/author and of the audience) as essential for the experience of 'yugen', and, as a result, also for the inner transformation of the 'shite'.
