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 (theater, dance, and performance art) on a worldwide level, The Saison Foundation awards grants and priority use of its rehearsal/workshop and residence facilities at Morishita Studio in Tokyo.
Based on the outcome of Residence in Morishita Studio from 2011 to 2015, the Saison Foundation starts “Saison Artist in Residence” to stimulates two-way international cultural exchanges with artists and arts organizations in overseas.
The Saison Foundation calls for applications from international artists working in contemporary theatre and dance.
The grant will be given to two artists including one round-trip Economy-class ticket and/or living expenses (4,000 yen per day excluding the days of arrival and departure) and/or research & activities costs (up to 5,000 yen per day excluding the days of arrival and departure) for each artist.
Deadline to request the application: 30 June (7 July to submit the application)
