Are you safe?

A variety of potential risks are involved in stage work, and there’s no denying the occurrence of “close calls” that can lead to accidents. This seminar takes a fresh look at safety in the theater, with the aim of raising safety awareness by proposing a focus on protecting oneself, rather than just following given rules. Concentrating on the three elements of head, feet and body, the seminar will be a blend of demonstrations and information on safety tools in talk session format.

*The seminar will be conducted in Japanese.
