Kyoto Experiment 2016

kyotoexperiment2016 Kyoto Experiment takes place 3-27 March 2016. The international performing arts festival Kyoto Experiment transmits culture from Kyoto out across the world. Now with a new venue in the form of ROHM Theatre Kyoto, the sixth festival includes leading new artists destined for the theater history books of the future and continues to be inspired by an unflagging experimental spirit.
