As a hub for creating and communicating arts and culture, ROHM Theatre Kyoto aspires to contribute to the development of Kyoto as a whole, furthering the repute of Kyoto as a cultural city. Aside from halls for hosting performances, the venue also includes new facilities that create a lively sense of community, transforming the site into a place more open than ever, in order to build a fresh theater culture in Kyoto, centered around a theater space that connects people’s senses of lifestyle and the arts.
The idea lying at the core of the reopening of the theater, superimposing values suitable for each new era on top of the old values, not only passes down the legacy of the architecture, but is also reflected in the activities of the ROHM Theatre Kyoto. This connects to the principals of Kyoto as a city of arts and culture, continuing to convey both traditions and new creativity. In order to shape a fresh theater culture in Kyoto based on these ideas, ROHM Theatre Kyoto’s activities are formed around four key elements: creation, cultivation, exchange, and lifestyle.
