Facing Society

For the period 2012 – 2014, ASSITEJ International proposed a 3 years cycle, focusing on “Facing society” (2012), “Facing the artists” (2013), and “Facing the audience” (2014). When the first issue of this round were published, at the occasion of Kijimuna Festival at Okinawa, Japan, the dramatic earthquake and the nuclear disaster of Fukushima had occurred only a few months before. Therefore, it is mainly devoted to how artists can react, and help the children to overcome. This reflection is linked with the Japanese concept of “Nushi gusui” : Medicine for life.
