What is Festival/Tokyo (F/T)?
F/T was an international performing arts festival held 13 times from 2009 to 2020 in the Ikebukuro area of Tokyo to introduce the appeal of contemporary performing arts from various perspectives and to pursue new possibilities. With a focus on the performing arts, the festival offered 204 programs in theater, dance, music, fine arts, and visual arts by cutting-edge artists from Japan and abroad, attracting a total of 770,000 visitors to related events. The festival has also created a vast nexus of various activities and exchanges, with the intersection of many people and artworks spanning both Japan and abroad.
From 2009 to 2013, Chiaki Soma served as Program Director, and from 2014, Sachio Ichimura served as Director's Committee Representative (Director from 2016); from 2018 to 2020, Kaku Nagashima served as Director and Chika Kawai as Co-Director. (From 2021, a program that inheritedF/T’s philosophy continues at Tokyo Festival.)
After the dissolution of Festival/Tokyo Executive Committee, NPO Art Network Japan, which served as the organizer and office of the festival, manages the materials and copyrights.
