This project’s activities are designed to offer audiences a wide range of Japanese and overseas theater so that people can collectively think about the various issues of our time such as nation and ethnicity, and to facilitate interaction between Japanese and overseas theater.
Storehouse Collection began in 2013 and marked its sixth year in 2018. Although we consider contemporary theater to have explored universal human nature within the framework of nation, ethnicity and culture, in these times of continual and dramatic change to this framework, Storehouse Collection creates an opportunity for overseas and Japanese theater groups and audiences to think together about what theater can bring to the table.
Artistic director: Led by Shingo Kimura, theater programming is handled together with coordinators from various countries.

Store House Company (Shingo Kimura)
Established to provide a variety of companies with a reasonably priced theater space, and to serve as a base for planning and producing theatrical performances. Since it attaches importance to the role of a theater as a place linking those who express themselves with those who watch, it is equipped with a lobby, despite its small size. The company provides a system that allows free use of its theater as a forum for creative expression, without examining the theater groups that use it. The festivals that it organizes feature groups from both Japan and overseas, and these festivals demonstrate the emphasis the group places on a high awareness of the creation of performing arts, as well as the future prospects for them.
