we cannot reach alone
Welcoming as its co-directors Issa Manalo Lopez and Tomohiko Kyogoku, who participated in last year's APAF, this event will see unique performers from across Southeast Asia and East Asia residing in Tokyo for one month to create works. In addition, a public appeal was made not only for participants but also for artistic, costume, and directorial assistants. Not only will participants with different backgrounds gather, talk, perhaps even clash, and stage the results of their collaboration, but the final wrap-up will reflect back on their trajectory.

In this project, one must face one’s personal history with honesty and be brave enough to share it. I am interested to see how our diverse methods will come together and discover where this conversation will lead us.
As well as meeting new participants, I hope that our continued relationships with last year's participants will deepen our creation. Moreover, I hope that this exhibition will be an opportunity for all participants, including the audience, to think about "My home country and Asia, myself and the world".
