TIF 2001

―Inviting the Audience to the Back Stage―

The following Communication Programs are to create and nurture potential audience as well as artists for the performing arts in the future by providing them with opportunities to explore the back stage of the theater and peek into the creative process of the work of performing arts. The decrease of the number of audience within the performing arts is becoming more and more serious each year. Although each of the Communication Programs is small, we believe that as a whole, in the long term, it will make a significant contribution to promote an overall understanding of and stronger interests in the performing arts amongst the public. The programs range from post-performance-talks with the artists to excursions into multilayered aspects existing behind the curtain as well as visiting artists at their rehearsals.
Following last year's success, this year we expanded the program to place an stronger emphasis on young people, especially students in particular, by sending artists to school class rooms to meet the students.
*All programes are free.
