About the INAMORI Art Project Group (IAPG)

Overcoming the difference of racial, ethnic and religious difference, the Inamori Theatrical Group was established in March 2010, seeking for realizing the peaceful world with no conflicts based upon the recognition of us as Earthian Family living on the same earth. After that, the name was changed to the INAMORI Art Project Group (IAPG) in January 2012. In September 2012, IAPG made its first performance, "SAIKAI - REUNITED - Vow of HIROSHIMA -". IAPG has five units to promote its activities; Play Unit, Music Unit, Dance Unit, Art Unit, and Taiko Unit. Members from wide renege of age groups are working on these activities at the side of work and studies. In the theatrical company performances, these five units get together and perform as one general and synchronized art work.

INAMORI Art Project Group,
Its Vision & Principles

Each of us as a human being has "differences" with each other. The differences in gender, nations of birth, human races, skin colors, religions, ways of thinking, good points, and weak points. Nothing must be the same each other. However, there is only one common thing among human beings. It is "LOVE". Human heart wishing for happiness of someone else other than myself, the heart of "sharing" feeling like the suffering and sorrow of someone else like myself, and rejoicing like my own joy. It is the heart of forgiveness, thinking that even if someone makes a mistake, I am not perfect like God, too. "LOVE" is the human heart of "Sharing, Making Alive, and Forgiving".

Messages from Noriko Inamori,
Founder of IAPG

Peace and Unification of Religions

If we build a peace, I think it is wholly dependent upon whether we human can notice that plants and animals are the same children of the earth, and all of us share the same destiny, standing on the perception we are brothers and sisters given the lives and made alive by the earth. If we notice it, we should not be able to destruct the environment. When we think about the next way the humans should go, I think it is to unify as one beyond the differences. When religious denominations are united as one acknowledging their differences and the meaning of their existence, I think all the problems will be melted in the idea called "love". At the time of the Meiji Restoration, Japan had closed the country to foreign commerce, but Ryoma Sakamoto and others raised the awareness of the stance of Japan in the world. Likewise, I would like to promote the awareness that we are living on the earth in the universe. When we stand on such a viewpoint, we cannot kill each other. At this moment, I wish to ask a favor of the religious leaders of the world. Beyond the boundary, now at this time, I would like you to join hands. I would like you to extend your hand from the side of the leader first.

Our Works

Drama "Prayer of Mother Mary -A Miracle of NAGASAKI-"

This work is a tale in which the same person appears beyond the three periods of Edo, Showa, and the present age. Although there may be pointed out that the transmigration is a Buddhism thought and such thought is not in Christianity, we do not want to convey a Christian doctrine, but if there is a reincarnation, nothing was more foolish than the countries being opposed to each other and fighting for each other we thought. It is because probably we were once born in the country which we thought to be an enemy country. Read more
