Here`s a wee video of Tricky Hat`s recent trip to Japan where we worked with our Hono Flames for the first time face to face, and reconnected with our partners and artistic collaborators following the pandemic.


We worked with the Kyoto Flames from company NPO Gekiken and Hello Theatre. We previously worked with them in 2021 digitally, making a short film Inochi- meaning “life” in Japanese.

We also collaborated with Play Art! Sendai face to face, following our 2020 digital collaboration 炎 Honō.


A massive thank you to our funders: @britishcouncil @daiwafoundation @creativescots Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation Foundation without whom this would not have been possible ✨🇯🇵
