【AsiAn rib】
Launched in 2017, this project introduces Japanese translations of plays from Asia, as well as taking Japanese plays translated into Chinese and Korean to Asian countries. The purpose is for these works to generate collaborative works between Japan and other Asian countries, which can be transmitted to Asia and the rest of the world. Aside from its core members, AsiAn rib is a fluid project engaging with various artists, and creating works in a variety of styles.
