Hello to ASSITEJ Aotearoa NZ from ASSITEJ Australia in Okinawa.

The ASSITEJ general meeting Day 2 is about to start and focus on the future projects ASSITEJ might focus on.

Had a great seminar this morning about the Asian artists network. Australia very keen to develop better and more lasting links.

Seeing lots of theatre from across the world and surviving the heat! It’s full on.

Thanks to Jenny Wake for prompting me to say hello. Will share our report of the proceedings with all and look forward to more contact between our two centres.
