Performance Changes, Cancellations due to Earthquake

Due to catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Tohoku last Friday, a number of theatre performances were immediately cancelled, including at the Kanagawa Arts Theatre, Parco Theatre and Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space.

One week on, the situation is changing daily, affected by the threat of aftershocks (many centering in the Tokyo and Kanto region), the grave need to conserve electricity, rolling blackouts, as well as the issues at the Fukushima nuclear reactors. Performances in Kanto are especially likely to be cancelled or postponed, although there is quite a strong “the show must go on” atmosphere too.

Visitors heading to see performances should definitely check that the show is still going ahead and I am also trying to provide major updates via my Twitter feed.

  1. Hello, thanks for this information on performance changes and best of luck to you and to Japan! Could you tell me if KAAT is playing again? I’m preparing a report for an audio tech supplier of them and would be glad to report they’re OK. Too much media info in Europe is overheated panic scenarios. Thanks!
