Tokyo Festival Farm 2022: call for Asia-based artists

Tokyo Festival Farm is calling for applications from young artists (under 35) based in Asia who work closely with the performing arts, for two programmes: the Farm-Lab Exhibition and the online Asian Performing Arts Camp.

Farm-Lab Exhibition

Farm-Lab Exhibition brings together emerging artists based in Asia to work with other participants from various cultures, nationalities and backgrounds. Collaboration begins online in early August, and participants will come to Tokyo for a 10-day residency in late September. In early October, they will perform their work-in-progress to the public at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre’s Atelier East and Atelier West (TBD).

Around three people will be selected, and the product will be a work-in-progress presentation, with the ambition of ultimately showing at Tokyo Festival and elsewhere in Asia. 

Asian Performing Arts Camp

Held online from 3 August to 19 October 2022, the Asian Performing Arts Camp is a two-month programme where performing arts practitioners working throughout Asia gather online to develop ideas through lectures, discussions and a collaborative research process. The programme will conclude with an online presentation by the participants, allowing them to share the progress of their research with the general public. 

This year, around eight participants will be selected. The programme will be conducted in English, and participation is free.
