Performing Arts

2017-2018 Season

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.
