Meet EDN members while at TPAM

TPAM (Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama) is a space where professionals from various places in the world who explore the possibility of contemporary performing arts exchange through performance and meeting programs to gain information, inspiration and network for the creation, dissemination and vitalization of performing arts.

Established in 1995 as Tokyo Performing Arts Market and moved in 2011 to the “Creative City” Yokohama. Reinforcing its focus on Asia and having started to involve itself in Asian co-production, TPAM is internationally recognized as one of the most influential performing arts platforms in Asia.

TPAM organises different programmes, such as:

  • TPAM Direction, to get to know performances from Asia and the world,
  • TPAM Exchange, to promote productions and projects, get into thematic discussions about the field
  • TPAM Fringe, to discover more performances in Yokohama in Tokyo.

In the context of the TPAM Exchange, EDN members are invited to meet with their Asian counterparts of AND+ in a closed meeting on February 13th. Please contact the EDN office to express your interest.
