what is Kyoto Experiment?
Kyoto Experiment is a performing arts festival held in Kyoto since 2010. Dedicated to producing experimental performing arts—both from Japan and overseas— the festival aims to bring the arts and society closer together through new forms of dialogue. The festival consists of three programs: "Shows," a lineup of experimental performing arts works and exhibitions from around the world; "Super Knowledge for the Future [SKF]," a series of talks and workshops that explore the relationship between experimental performing arts and society; and "Kansai Studies," a program that researches the Kansai region together with artists and provides a foundation for future creation.
2022 key concept
“New teku teku”
“Teku teku” is a Japanese word that expresses footsteps or walking at a steady pace. Our key concept “New teku teku” proposes to reconsider walking and how we share physicality, space and time. In addition to the act of using your feet to walk there are, by extension, many types of teku teku such as being in various states of mind or shuttling back and forth between different times. This year’s festival aims to rethink these various ways of walking and gain a new way of thinking that will guide us in the future.
