TPAM – Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama 2016


TPAM is the oldest international platform for contemporary performing arts in Asia. It provides opportunities for professionals in the field of performing arts to communicate and discuss each other, as well as facilitates international co-productions.

It hosts a wide variety of showings, discussions and meetings, while such professionals on performing arts as festival directors, theatre producers, facilitators, theatre company staffs and presenters get together, share information, mutually learn, tackle issues and build network.

With a focus on Asia since 2015, TPAM promotes the development of performing arts in Asia by committing on co-production, conducting stage performances and meetings, and fostering exchange among professionals in Asia.

During the TPAM period, the Japan Foundation Asia Center is also going to invite approximately 50 professionals on performing arts from around the world (mainly from Asia) to Japan, aiming at expanding and strengthening the professional network.
