Norifumi Hida had an interest in British theatre and theatre for young people (drama and theatre education, youth theatre and theatre for young audiences) at Tamagawa University, Japan. In 2004, to know more about the fields and gain professional knowledge and skills of British theatre, he moved to England and studied his MFA in Theatre Directing at East 15 Acting School, the University of Essex, and his PhD in Arts Education at the University of Warwick.

While doing his MFA and PhD, he worked as a director, assistant director and teaching artist with the Unicorn Theatre, Polka Theatre, Box Clever Theatre, and Camden People’s Theatre. He gave lectures and workshops at Lyon Park Infant School, Southfield Primary School, Goldsmiths College, the University of Warwick, and the University of Chester. After completing his PhD, he was a Research Associate to the MA in Theatre for Young Audiences at Rose Bruford College.

In 2008, he was invited to ASSITEJ’s Next Generation programme and received special training to be a next-generation international artist with other 23 young artists from 16 different countries for three years. In 2014, he became a Board Member of the Next Generation.

He returned permanently to Japan in 2015 and currently works at Toho Gakuen College of Drama and Music, Tokyo.
