We’re currently looking for participants from Asia for our Asian Baby Theater Meeting!

top

The objective of the “Asian Baby Theater Meeting” is to create a network of people involved in performing arts targeted towards infants and young children (explained below as “baby theater”) from various countries in Asia. We recognize that, although the number of artists and coordinators with work relating to baby theater has increased over the past several years in Asia, Japan included, these groups have had relatively few opportunities to recognize each others’ creations, exchange knowledge and personal experiences, or collaborate with one another. The term “baby theater” began to be known as such in the 1980s in Europe, and developed following the 2000s creation of the international network called “Small Size Network”. The main goal of our project is to continue to hold these kinds of meetings and aim to create a baby theater network for the Asia region.

We are currently taking applications for our main project from people who meet the following conditions.
