This event has ended.

The situation of disabled people in the field of performing arts is beginning to attract attention ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games. Slow Movement was formed in 2015 by a group of diverse individuals that transcends boundaries of age, gender, nationality and disability. It looks to support disabled performers and develop the surrounding environment by advancing training and improving the human resources available.
