"Encountering something unknown can lead us to positive changes." - Migiwa & Kyo



Observing that societies worldwide have become increasingly divided by a fear of what is unknown, Tate master/choreographer Kyo Kasumi, and Migiwa Miyajima, a jazz composer/big band leader, founded the “Samurai Jazz Project” in 2019.

We dedicate ourselves to empowering people facing unprecedented events and hurdles. By showing an unforeseen collaboration between Tate, which originated in Japanese Kabuki theater culture in the early 1600s and still exists in Japan today, and an American art form “big band jazz”, we aim to deliver the message that encountering something undiscovered can lead us to positive changes.



We are very happy to announce the creation of the Kyoko Arai Fund, which will be used to fund annual HEAR US (Helping Elevate and Recapitalize Underserved Stories) Awards at NYU Tisch.

In making this award, we hope to encourage diverse voices and stories in the film industry.
