KIJIMUNA FESTA 2010

Okinawa Japan  17 – 25 July 2010

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

Kijimuna festa, the International Theatre Festival Okinawa for Young Audience, celebrates its sixth year in 2010. The 2010 festival will be held from the 17th to 25th of July.

 THE AIM OF KIJIMUNA FESTA

Through experiencing the world’s great performances and participating in workshops led by artists, it is our goal that children, the leaders of the next generation, become friends with each other through mutual respect and understanding. This festival aims to provide such an environment where they can grow in sensitivity and creativity. Through this great opportunity for the children of Okinawa and its citizens to communicate with people from all over the world, Okinawa itself would like to contribute to world peace though the Okinawan spirits of Ichariba Choodee – one meeting makes us all siblings – and Bankoku no Shinryo – to be the bridge that connects the world. It is perhaps true that Okinawa is not yet world famous for its peace mission due to the presence of one of the largest active American Military Bases. Therefore, considering the size of the island on which such a proportionally substantial base is situated, not only our shows but also our symposia and seminars dedicate great attention to the mission of world peace.
