Festival Tokyo 2020

Festival/Tokyo 2020

Art, Dance, Theater & Film

Presenting a wide and exciting range of contemporary stage performances, Festival/Tokyo explores new social possibilities for art. Launched in 2009 and held every autumn mainly in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo, the festival features a program of theatre, dance, music, visual art and film by cutting-edge artists from Japan and around the world.

This year’s lineup features artists and companies from Japan, Europe and Asia, including Teater Ekamatra from Malaysia, fabien prioville dance company, Bangkok International Performing Arts Meeting and another collaboration between Japanese playwright Shu Matsui and up-and-coming South Korean director Kim Jeong.

Because of the coronavirus, this year’s performances and events are taking place in very different (and difficult) circumstances. Certain productions were changed as a result of the pandemic due to the travel ban and so on. Live performances are socially distanced and part of the festival is held remotely, with performances available to watch online. Nonetheless, the opening work and other events continue the festival’s efforts to develop a sense of local identity in Toshima community shopping streets.
