りっかりっか*フェスタ
2021

Notification of completion of the 19th riccaricca*festa

The 19th riccaricca*festa has come to a successful conclusion thanks to the cooperation of many people.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the artists, stage staff, and volunteers who participated in the festival from within Okinawa and Japan, and to all those who participated remotely from overseas, for working together to make the festival a success despite the difficult circumstances. Thank you very much!
We would also like to express our sincere gratitude to all the people who always support the festival, to those who visited the theater, and to those who watched the online streaming. Thank you so much for supporting riccaricca*festa.
The 19th Festa was postponed from July last year to January this year due to the impacts of the coronavirus. However, due to the spread of the Omicron variant, the situation is still very severe worldwide.
The next festa is scheduled to be held in July. With the cooperation of many people who are involved in the Festa, we will continue to make sincere efforts to find ways to hold the festa.
Theater is NUCHIGUSUI, medicine for life. It is precisely because of this situation that we hope to be able to share our excitement, joy, and energy with you through the stage. Until then, everyone, please take care of yourselves and stay healthy!
