THE TOKYO 2020 ORGANISERS HAVE ANNOUNCED THAT A NEW CREATIVE TEAM LED BY HIROSHI SASAKI WILL SHOULDER THE RESPONSIBILITY OF DESIGNING AND DELIVERING ‘SIMPLER’ OPENING AND CLOSING CEREMONIES AT NEXT YEAR’S OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPIC GAMES.

 SASAKI, WHO SERVED IN THE PREVIOUS PLANNING TEAM AS THE EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR FOR THE PARALYMPIC GAMES, WILL NOW OVERSEE ALL FOUR CEREMONIES.

TOKYO 2020 EXPRESSED “HEARTFELT GRATITUDE AND UTMOST RESPECT” TO THE FORMER TEAM HEADED BY CHIEF EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR NOMURA MANSAI FOR THEIR DEDICATION “TO A VERY CHALLENGING MISSION OF PREPARING THE CEREMONIES” SINCE THEIR APPOINTMENT IN JULY 2018.

IN FEBRUARY, NOMURA SAID NEARLY 80 PERCENT OF WORK FOR THE OPENING AND CLOSING CEREMONIES WAS COMPLETE. BUT THE TOKYO OLYMPIC AND PARALYMPIC GAMES WERE POSTPONED IN MARCH DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.
