A scene of the first performance,
"Bird Theater Festival 8" produced by the Bird Theater organizing committee and sponsored by Shin-Nihonkai Shinbun company, etc. will be hold in Tottori-shi, part of wester Japan, September 12-27.
With the theme of 70 years after the war this year, seven groups, domestic and abroad, including Korea, Finland and others will perform.
Local residents also take part in the drama and a dance. Students of Tottori School for the Deaf will show a play titled "Road with Hope: Bond" with the theme related to the high school baseball.
A theater festival has begun to promote theatrical culture in the area in 2008.
The event director says, "A drama conveys a clearer image of a wartime than reading a book. I'd like to make a memory of the war which fades through this theater festival be revived now."
