Hello. I am Akane, Public Relations Chief for ASSITEJ World Congress and Mirai Festival.

I would like to invite you to our project, “Bring Fun to Our Children.”

Many elementary and secondary schools have been closed since late February because of COVID-19. At first, we have been asked to stay at home. Recently, the restriction has been loosed a little. Some people say that children could play in outside if they are not packed with others.

However, in reality many parents say to their children, “You cannot invite your friends,” or “You cannot go to school. You have to stay at home.” I have seen many children playing with TV games and iPad silently. I have also met many parents worrying how they could spend their time with children.

I wish we could bring our TYA Festival to the children in this difficult circumstance. However, our Festival is postponed.

Festival by the professionals gathering for children.

Festival for the children towards the unknown future.

I really want to let people know about this festival.

I have a request for you. Would you please send me the movie file of your dance for our project?

In the following URL, you can watch the dance which ASSITEJ Young Dance Network created. You can dance based on it by yourself or with your friends.





Our team will upload your movie file to various SNS (Tiktok and YouTube). Let’s create the movement by the power of performing arts all over the world, in this difficult time.
