A rare glimpse into Japan’s burgeoning new arts scene, Electric Japan is a free online festival featuring works by Japanese artists in dance, theatre, fashion, film and photography from 1 – 7 August as part of Coronet Inside Out.

About

Electric Japan is curated by The Coronet Theatre’s Artistic Director Anda Winters, who said “We were inspired by the plans for the Tokyo Olympics to take a look at the current arts scene in Japan, which we rarely have a chance to see in Europe, especially now when travel is so limited. This is just a taster. But I hope it will open up new opportunities both for these talented artists and for audiences, eager to see what is going on internationally.”
