Asian rib
A private organization launched in January 2017, this platform for the introduction and production of stage works aims to strengthen theatrical exchange among Asian countries. Its core members are Rieko Yamazaki (aka E-RUN), who studied at drama school in Beijing from 1991 and went on to translate, direct, appear in, and produce theater performances in Beijing, Hong Kong, Taiwan and other Chinese-speaking areas; and Hong Myungwha, a South Korean resident of Japan who is active in both Korea and Japan, and who won the 9th Odashima Yushi Drama Translation Award in 2017.
AsiAn Rib’s activities are based on the principle of transmitting Asian messages from Asian artists to the world, looking ahead to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
