Looking ahead to the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, this aerial (acrobatic) performance program is designed to discover and train performers with disabilities who will participate in cultural programs and the opening and closing ceremonies.
Currently in Japan there are very few performers with disabilities, and those performers have limited technical skills. The purpose of this program is to increase the number of disabled performers and improve their skills, using highly effective “aerial” methods.
At the same time, we aim to learn the training methods developed for the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, and create a system whereby performers with disabilities in Japan can acquire the resulting skills and disseminate them in this country.
With the cooperation of the National Centre for the Circus Arts, which provided intensive training at the 2012 Games in London, we will learn through intensive classes and lectures the training methods developed in the United Kingdom for disabled performers taking part in the London Paralympics opening ceremony.

In this project, people transcend categories such as age, gender, nationality, and ability/disability to collaborate on the creation of performances around town, thus spreading a message of diversity and harmony. At the same time, there are very few performers with disabilities in Japan today, and those performers have limited technical skills. Our organization is carrying out a program that aims to increase the number of disabled performers and improve their performing skills using highly effective “aerial” methods.
