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.

Introduction of Noriko Inamori

She was born in Tokyo in 1956. She was a mother having five children, and living an ordinary life as a housewife. However, since around 2007, her steps started swaying when walking, and after that the symptom gradually progressed. And in around 2009, she became unable to stand up alone. She was given a notice of the name of the disease, SND (Striato‐nigral degeneration), one of the Multi system atrophy. This disease is like Parkinnson disease, and it progresses faster than Parkinson disease, and before long to death. she was pronounced that she would live only for around five years by a doctor.
When she knew her own disease, she wondered what she could do to use her limited life. So she reached an idea to do something good to the world through the theatrical performances and songs which she enjoyed since she was young.
Then she founded an amateur artistic group in 2009. She started the group with a few friends at first. Now it has over a hundred of people gathering as of 2013.
She herself cannot talk any more now, however she would like to appeal for Love and Peace to all over the world through this activity.

Noriko Inamori returned to heaven on August 26, 2013. All the members of the INAMORI Art Project Group is taking over her spirit, and keeping on the activities for the world peace.
