We are pleased to announce Kyoto Experiment 2019! This year, the festival’s tenth edition, will take place from October 5th – 27th, 2019.

Kyoto Experiment is an international performing arts festival that has been introducing cutting-edge performing arts from both inside and outside Japan, taking place every autumn since 2010 mainly at theatres in Kyoto. Over the past ten years we have continued to work on the creation of new works with many acclaimed artists and also opportunities to create new artistic expression by transcending not only theatre and dance but also genres such as visual art, music and architecture. Over the next ten years we continue to aim to create a varied and rich place of exchange for people through the performing arts.

We look forward to welcoming audiences this Autumn!


Dates: October 5th – 27th, 2019 (23 days)
Venues: ROHM Theatre Kyoto, Kyoto Art Center, Kyoto Art Theater Shunjuza, Kyoto Prefectual Citizens’ Hall ALTI, heatre E9 Kyoto and other locations

※ The initial artist lineup will be announced in April and the full lineup at a later date.
