Tokyo Festival Farm - call for Asia-based artists for 2021 programmes

Calls open for applications from participants based in Asia for Tokyo Festival Farm - Farm-Lab Exhibition and Asian Performing Arts Camp. There will be an online orientation in English on 9th June for interested participants.

Tokyo Festival Farm is a new framework that brings together all development initiatives within Tokyo Festival, a festival for performing arts. It was created by combining Asian Performing Arts Farm (APAF), a platform promoting exchange and growth among young artists in Asia, with Festival/Tokyo (F/T)’s Research Program and Education & Outreach Program.

Tokyo Festival Farm opens for applications for participants. Those who are based in Asia are eligible to apply for the following two programs (deadlines for both: 20 June 2021). Some other programs are open to those based in Japan or Tokyo only (see website for details).

Farm-Lab Exhibition

This year, a directorial team composed of Ness Roque and Osamu Shikichi invites artists across Asia to participate in a performing arts piece (a trial creation).
