Profile

Satoh Sakichi Theatrical Festival Committee
Satoh Electronics Inc. established the Oji Fringe Theatre in 1998 as a Mécéna project, and actively uses it as a method to support young artists. The Oji Fringe Theatre also began a committee to run the Satoh Sakichi Theatrical Festival, an invitation-only festival that bears the name of the company’s founder. This committee carefully selects artists which will bring a greater level of performances to the theatre than the theatre’s regular projects. The festival has been held every two years since 2004.
