Transnational Mobile Festival Creators’ Cradle Circuit Loei&Tokyo 2021

  • Organization : Karakoa Incorporated Association
  • Section : International project
  • Type of Grant Program : Single
  • Art Forms : Interdisciplinary


The “Creators’ Cradle Circuit (3Cs)” is a transnational mobile performing arts festival where emerging Asian performing artists travel and gather in Asian cities, crossing the borders of their areas of activity, to develop their works and experiment with new values and expressions in the performing arts.
After two years of research to realize the 3Cs, Karakoa and three project collaborators, together with six groups of eight artists from Southeast Asia, Japan and Taiwan, held the series of events and festival in Loei (Thailand) in July and Tokyo (Japan) in September.
Due to comply with the travel restrictions imposed by various countries as a measure to prevent the global spread of the new coronavirus disease, the 3Cs artists remained in their home countries. Still, they collaborated with a remote body of partners in Loei and Tokyo to present their work in a hybrid format that crosses online and real venues.
