Healthcare Facility x Ima Theater: “Fukurounomori Furatto Bunko Opening Event”

  • Art Project

Fukurounomori Furatto Bunko, a base for community exchange, will be opening on the first floor of Ikebukuro Keishinen on January 21, 2016. This space, where people and books come and go, is ideally located for locals to drop in. For the opening event, Ima Theater will make bookmarks out of everyday items, and will put on performances expressing the joy of books, employing music, actions, and words.

Everyone from small children to adults may participate. Be sure to bring by any books you’d like to give to others or any materials to use for bookmarks. We hope to see you there.


Ima theater (performance project)
Ima theater are composed of Saori Azuma, Miho Inatsugu, Aki Miyatake, and Tomo Yamazaki, who have backgrounds in theater and dance, to put on performances. Ima theater began their activities in 2013 in HAGISO—a small composite cultural facility in Yanaka, Tokyo. They collaborate with “venues,” such as on-foot tours through town, mobile libraries, cafes, and joint productions with people from many different genres including musicians, artists, and architects, as well as with the circumstances created at those venues, in search of the role of performances. They continue on with their undertakings while contemplating places that are both theatrical and reminiscent of Ima (living rooms), in that people gather around and share time and activities together.
