About Tokyo Festival Farm
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. There are three categories: “School,” a place to meet and learn, “Internship,” an on-site training opportunity, and “Lab,” for exploring research and development. By having this range of programs based around open calls and developing a collaborative interdisciplinary and interregional approach, Tokyo Festival Farm aims to foster professionals capable of free movement across all kinds of borders, which will become increasingly fluid in the future.
