Mirai no Matsuri
(festival of the future)
What comes to mind on hearing the word “matsuri ”(festival)? The general definition for matsuri is “the act of praying to or worshiping a deity or ancestors to give thanks or to comfort the spirit”. However, in recent years, music festivals and art festivals are all considered matsuri. What all of these have in common is that people gather to share an experience and pass on cultures to future generations and is a communication platform.The Roppongi Art Night 2017, will be featuring art and performances from around the world, including many from Asia, proposing a new creative form of “matsuri ”.
