This year’s festival will be held over 23 days from September 30th to October 22nd 2023. Dedicated to producing experimental performing arts—both from Japan and overseas— the festival has been held in Kyoto since 2010 and aims to bring the arts and society closer together through new forms of dialogue. Featuring experimental works that move freely between genres such as theater, dance, music, fine art, design, and architecture, the festival hopes to open up new possibilities through the creations, experiences, and ideas that emerge from such a diverse combination.
