Performing Arts

2009-2010 Season

In this modern era where boundaries— national, cultural and conceptual—are constantly bent and traversed, Japanese culture is no longer confined to the geographical borders of Japan. This season focuses on Japan-themed performances that were developed in Berlin by international artists in collaboration with Japanese artists based outside of Japan. Pristinely designed and decisively daring, the resulting work is truly a cultural hybrid, with unique reflection on its Japanese roots.
