Launched in 2012 by theater director Hiroshi Koike, director of performing arts company Pappa TARAHUMARA. KIKH Bridge Project is an organization that bridges creativity, education and dissemination to spark hope for the future and imagine a vision for the future of mankind. Currently co-creating theatrical productions in Spain, Poland and Japan. In August 2021, Hiroshi Koike successfully directed The Mahabharata, a nine year project that began in Cambodia and was developed and toured throughout Asia. The Mahabharata Chapter of Desire and Chapter of Destruction was selected as a co-hosted cultural program of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and was organized by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs in Japan. The production was a performance that featured live music, media art, and physical expression performed in multiple languages by artists from six Asian countries trained in classical theater from different regions. The blend of various art forms and languages expresses a harmony of differences that presents a view of an inclusive society for the future. Currently, Hiroshi Koike is developing an international project based on the tales of the phoenix around the world. The project aims to bring together artists from Europe, Asia, Oceania, Americas and Africa. The project will go through a 3 year developmental period and culminate in an international production.
