This program aims to develop exchange residency programs with international partners, such as such as theaters, dance houses, festivals, artist-in-residence organizations, theater companies, dance companies, and grant-making organizations. The international partners are expected to invite Japanese artists to their residency program and to send artists to the Saison Foundation’s residency program. Those who wish to start collaboration projects between a overseas artist and Japanese artist through artist-in-residence programs are also eligible to apply.
An open call for Visiting Fellows 2019 will be announced around May 2019.
This program aims to build up an international network for contemporary performing arts and to enhance mutual understanding, and gives opportunities for artists and arts managers to research the contemporary performing arts scene in Japan.
