2023 Lineup: A Journey of Encounters, and Their Intersection

Seven years have now passed since ROHM Theatre Kyoto reopened with the mission of building a theatre culture. But what does this aim mean in concrete terms? And how should we define theatre culture? We believe it means programming a wide range of events and productions, and running a theatre venue to debate and explore these questions with artists, audiences, and others. While the outline and image of a theatre culture is there, a definite definition is still difficult, perhaps revealing the importance and scale of our mission. If we focus on the “building” part, we can reaffirm this as meaning not the maintenance of a theatre culture that is already established or exists but as engaging in the creation of a future one. It means to seek out a new community centering on a theatre and continuing to expand the role of a theatre venue toward goals that renew and which each and every one of us conceives. Always en route to our destination, we will share with you spaces and opportunities for interactions and encounters along the way.
