The Saison Foundation is a grant-making foundation established in July 1987 that supports projects and activities related to contemporary Japanese theater and dance. In order to increase the visibility of contemporary Japanese performing arts on a worldwide level, The Saison Foundation awards grants and priority use of its rehearsal/workshop and residence facilities at Morishita Studio in Tokyo.

About Morishita Studio

The Saison Foundation owns a building in Tokyo called Morishita Studio, which houses four studios and three guest rooms (accommodation) that only our grantees may rent for rehearsals, workshops, creative work, work-in-progress showings, etc., at reasonable rates just to cover basic running costs. Each studio is furnished with lauan plywood floors (dance mats to cover the wooden floors are available upon request), mirrors and lesson bars.
