<Greetings for the Renewal Opening of "Au Praxinoscope

In July 2022, "Live Au Praxinoscope" will start.

The first event will be an improvised live session with juggling and tap dance on Saturday, July 2.

Au Praxinoscope opened in October 2013 as a store and gallery where animation artist Koji Yamamura introduces "short animation from around the world" and provides a bird's eye view of everything from the origins of animation to contemporary animation. Recently, he has also been producing short films as a production company.

We have recently renewed the gallery and store space. Various events will start as a small live space.
