"Theater of the Heart" Performances in Hiroshima Prefecture

Since fiscal 2013, in line with its CSR Action Guidelines and its commitments to "create a more harmonious society" and "inspire the future," MHI Group has supported the Shiki Theatre Company's "Kokoro no Gekijo" (Theater of the Heart) musical productions aimed at cultivating a richness of spirit among children of the next generation across Japan. Group employees, as well as their family members, regularly assist as volunteers at the troupe's performances near their workplaces.

In December 2018, the Shiki Theatre Company gave 11 performances of "Majorin Who Threw Away Magic" in six cities across Hiroshima Prefecture. Nine MHI Group employees and their family members assisted as volunteers at the performances in the cities of Hiroshima, Higashihiroshima and Mihara, helping to guide and usher the young guests to their seats.

"Majorin Who Threw Away Magic" is an original story about a witch named Majorin who, from her interaction with human beings, comes to understand the warmth and compassion imbued in the words "thank you." From this lesson, Majorin learns the importance of kindness, friendship and courage in everyday life. It is hoped that from this show young children will cultivate their richness of spirit.

Going forward, through various opportunities MHI Group will continue to actively support the development of the children of the next generation.
