World Theatre Festival Shizuoka under Mt.Fuji
This is an international theater festival organized by the Shizuoka Performing Arts Center (SPAC), which was founded in 1997 by the Shizuoka local government as Japan’s first publicly-funded performing arts organization with its own resident actors, technical and production staff, based at its own facilities, including a theater and rehearsal studios. In 2011, its name was changed from the Spring Arts Festival Shizuoka to the Fuji no Kuni – World Theatre Festival (English name: World Theatre Festival Shizuoka under Mt. Fuji) and is now held each June at four venues in Shizuoka city including the Shizuoka Performing Arts Theater and the Shizuoka Performing Arts Park. Based on the concept that Fuji no Kuni (the land of Mt. Fuji = Shizuoka) can be connected to the world through theater, the festival presents productions by Japanese and foreign directors. The festival’s director is the SPAC artistic director, Satoshi Miyagi.
