For the Unknown Future

From Asia to the World

From Asia to the Unknown World

From Asia to the Children who lives in the Future

The era that the center of theater for children and young audiences is in Europe is gradually shifting. Now we have more opportunities to encounter the excellent works from Asian countries, or in Africa, or in South America, which we hadn’t been able to imagine before. So this is the festival that takes the change in a little bit advance, for which we have invited the choicest works from Asian countries and gathered Japanese works to welcome them. There will be 187 performances in total at the festival.

We aim to succeed this festival to make a new step toward the ASSITEJ World Congress in Tokyo, 2020. Then, we may be able to say, “Now the center of theater for children and young audiences is Asia by any chance.”
