On March 28th 2021 the eleventh edition of Kyoto Experiment came to a close. We’d like to thank everyone who supported and made the festival possible despite the effects of coronavirus. Now following this year’s Spring edition we are pleased to announce Kyoto Experiment: Kyoto International Performing Arts Festival 2021 Autumn will be held from October 1st to 24th, 2021.
The festival is based around three programs with the aim of connecting society and experimental performing arts from various perspectives. The ‘Shows’ program presents the work of cutting edge artists from Japan and overseas, the ‘Kansai Studies’ program researches the Kyoto and Kansai regions with artists with the aim of connecting this to the foundation of future creation, and the ‘Super Knowledge for the Future’ program consists of various talks and workshops on various social issues relevant beyond the world of art. Through these programs we are preparing an all the more experimental festival.
