    Anju no Chi

A new creative support program aiming to cultivate the next generation of artistic talent in

ROHM Theatre Kyoto partners with Kyoto Art Center to launch this new creative support program aiming to discover and nurture young artistic talent. The program selects young artists to develop performances for audiences of 150–200, offering support through a dedicated studio space at Kyoto Art Center and the North Hall at ROHM Theatre Kyoto that is fully furnished with lighting and other technical capabilities, as well as assistance from both institutions’ PR and production staff. In this way, the program will cultivate the fresh talent in Kyoto that can fly off around the world. For its inaugural year, the program has selected three groups whose future activities are highly anticipated. What are young artists thinking about? How are they challenging the boundaries of artistic expression? The program will offer unique insights into these questions.

(1) blue-egonaku

Based in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture. Harnessing playwright and director Shinichi Anasako’s background as a former rapper, this company employs a musically sensitive style featuring a strong sense of rhythm and lyrical language. It performs not only in conventional theatre venues but also everyday spaces such as shopping streets, shopping malls, and monorail trains. Its ambitious output has recently encompassed residencies outside Fukuoka to produce new work. This is its seventh production in Kyoto. It aspires to create work that transcends genre and geography, stimulating raw sensibilities not visible to the human eye based on inspirations from encounters with new kinds of people and culture.

(2) Anju no Chi

Formed in July 2016, Anju no Chi’s inaugural production was “Valley Metropolis Plan” at atelier GEKKEN and “Linked by the Fate of the Afterlife” at Ningenza. All the company’s members hail from the generation born in the 1990s and aspire to create work with a contemporary nature and a focus on theatre. In addition to theatre, the members of the company also produce various other kinds of work on an individual basis.

(3) akakilike

Producing mainly theatre work, the company akakilike comprises only technical crew and Midori Kurata. The group brings together collaborators to serve as members of the cast and crew with equal standing. It recruits no dancers or actors, instead deciding the performers as is necessary for each production.

Presented by ROHM Theatre Kyoto (Kyoto City Music Arts and Culture Promotion Foundation), Kyoto Art Center (Kyoto Arts and Culture Foundation), Kyoto City
The above are the overall organizers. Each individual performance is presented by its respective producers and co-presented by ROHM Theatre Kyoto (Kyoto City Music Arts and Culture Promotion Foundation), Kyoto Art Center (Kyoto Arts and Culture Foundation), and Kyoto City.
