Profile Information

What I do:
Theatre Journalist / Researcher
A little more about me:
I'm a theatre journalist based, mostly, in Tokyo, writing for journals and newspapers such as the Asashi Shimbun Newspaper. Traveling is big part of my life. I'm abroad half of the year to cover articles on interesting art festivals and theatre performances. For the past few years I have been working also as an independent artistic adviser, contributing to organizations like Festival/Tokyo. I was appointed Associate Creative Partner of Kanagawa Arts Theatre in 2010. I'm also a PhD researcher / visiting lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London. On 2011, I've published a book called Tokyo Theatre Today on contemporary Japanese theatre which you can read in English. All in all, I'm a busy person with many hats.
Projects I’m working on:
I will be working on the WalesLAb project this summer, specifically with two exciting Japanese companies visiting Wales for the first time.

They are all…

A Japanese Journalist coming to Wales

Way back in January 2013, The Japan Foundation sent me off to Wales to do an interview with the director of the company John McGrath. Having lived in London for the past several years, I've heard so much good things about the company and was extremely excited to visit Cardiff. Frankly, however, at first sight, the town of Cardiff was a bit monotonous... But, the good news was, that the creative people living there were far from monotonous.

John and the whole…
