Japan Society’s 2017-18 Fall/Winter Performing Arts Season

We are thrilled to announce our ambitious season which kicks off with three new Japan Society commission projects. In celebration of our 110th Anniversary, this season marks the first time for us to co-produce a series of international projects with prestigious organizations in Japan, bringing these new works also to a Japanese audience. The season also features the second edition of our NOH-NOW series which highlights contemporary artists who continue to draw inspiration from Japan’s centuries-old noh tradition. We invite you to join us on this special journey.
