An exhibition covering the whole range of "Japanese theater and its history is being presented to the public, not only the USA, but also the whole world. Called "the largest exhibition of the century to focus on theater". It not only presents itself with a continuity of 1500 years or preserved theater forms, but also heaven for those creating avant-garde theater, which although being the most innovative of this second half of the 20th century, remains deeply rooted in Japan's past" - quoted from the Introduction
