KYOTO EXPERIMENT 2017

2017.10.14 - 11.5

About

Kyoto Experiment: Kyoto International Performing Arts Festival has taken place every autumn in Kyoto since 2010, bringing together leading examples of theater and dance from around the world. The eighth festival will be held for 23 days between October 14th and November 5th, 2017, with ROHM Theatre Kyoto as the main venue.As always, the festival will include specifically commissioned new work by international artists. By serving as an experimental place for creativity and interchange, the festival aspires to transform Kyoto into a platform for the global performing arts.

This year’s programming is themed around encounters with the “inner other.” The participating artists will present work that transcends familiar contexts of geography, genre and style to uncover what is “different” within society and us. This year’s festival will also form part of the program for Culture City of East Asia 2017 Kyoto, including performances of Chinese, Korean and Japanese artists’ work and events encouraging East Asian interchange. Along with the various satellite events designed to deepen the theater-going experience, the festival offers a wide range of ways for audiences to come into contact with the wonder of the performing arts.
