Directors, whose activities are unique, are appointed by TPAM as the directors of this program. They freely propose concepts and new points of view in their directions, through which we can share contemporary ideas and issues to contemplate on the possibilities of performing arts.
Masashi Nomura Direction
What could be the contemporary theater of Asia that the whole region could share? We don’t know yet. Each of the three programs I propose this year, however, may suggest a lead to tackle this big question from two angles.
In today’s global system of capitalism and highly developed information society, the whole region of Asia has come to have a common ground of urban society to a certain extend. While Hickey Cancun Tornado and Girl X talk about the independence of an individual in a mature society, I believe they both may hint at the “now” of the entire Asia.
On the other hand, the more common ground we share, the more important and critical it must become for us to be aware of the cultural diversity and traditions of different areas in Asia. The word “contemporary” does not necessarily mean it’s all the same across Asia although we live in the same present time. In an attempt to fully understand this aspect of the issue, no play is more thought-provoking than the SCOT’s production of The Trojan Women that layers the ancient Greece with today’s wars, and reflect the Japanese traditional values upon the present realities of the world.

Fumi Yokobori Direction
I would like to look at the work of “dancers” in my program. Within the strict bindings of choreography, or in a highly improvisational structure with some given rules, how do the dancers make “moments of dance” happen? Those moments, created by the dancers who have chosen this art as profession for their life, are to be appreciated. The choreographers construct and deconstruct their philosophy and methodology of inducing the “moment of becoming dance”, and repeat the process through their body. Then, at the present, how do they perceive the world through their body? This program shows the works of Pichet Kulunchun and Mika Kurosawa, choreographers who, based in Thailand and Japan respectively, have been creating new contexts of dance free from any conventional idea or methodology. At the same time, can they be free from the proposition that dance can be useful for society, and from the reasons why they dance?. I would like to examine how dance can be free from meanings and personal reasons, or in other words, how dance can be just dance. The two works I present this year are the ones that I firmly believe stand on the point where the two above-mentioned ideas cross.

Takuo Miyanaga Direction
For the last two years as I have been working on the subject of “extension of the definition of theater and its limit”, I have come to ask how a theater can make theater art grow. But this point of view, I have realized, is missing in today’s theater. How can a theater restore its function as a common place for all people to gather freely again? Can we truly share the essence of the art of theater with the audience within this rigid frame of the conventional theater that divides “watcher” and “watchee”? In my proposal at last year’s TPAM Direction program, the space where works were exhibited functioned as a salon where theater and life merged, and I thought that’s something theater should be like. History of the place provides the base of the play, and people who live there are the actors and the audience at the same time. Only in such a space is it possible that theater can be within the life of people. My choice for this program this year is a unit of two who are professional critics/editors. The drive of their work is in their strong interest in the land, and the lives of the people who live there. I believe their approach is capable of opening the theater up even wider to the public where theater can form more diverse relationship with the audience.
Born in Tokyo in 1981. Producer of the theater company Mamagoto, Miyanaga also runs his own production unit ZuQnZ. After working for Seinendan, he founded Mamagoto with director and playwright Yukio Shiba in 2009.

Tang Fu Kuen Direction
Southeast Asia – a geographically compact but culturally dense region – is formed over a century-long experience of colonization, nationalism, military dictatorship, urbanization and neo-liberalisation. This history of epistemological violence has produced a rich offspring of contemporary practices that address the dislocations of place and self. From this edition onward, TPAM will identify artists and works that capture the inheritance of a chequered past and the realities of the complex present. Through the lens of contemporary independent artists, we will experience the multiple iterations and mobility of identity that arise inevitably from the transcultural processes of constructing bodies, gestures and languages.
The triptychal works of Eisa Jocson (Philippines) and Melati Suryadarmo (Indonesia / Germany) offer readings into female performativity as their bodies shift from one cultural space into another, creating embodiments and affects that are deep and also unstable. Eisa Jocson moves her professional pole dance practice into an artistic milieu and disavows her own image, then attempts to incarnate as a macho dancer from the subcultural Manila club, and finally grafts her body into a ‘japayuki’ entertainer from the Philippines working in the Japanese salaryman bar. Melati Suryadarmo subjects her body into a regime of repetition in EXERGIE – butter dance and then a durational performance of I LOVE YOU, chronicling her displacement from Indonesia to Germany, and returning to a ritual body where self-possession is re-examined in ‘Borrowed’.
For Eko Supriyanto (Indonesia), it was a journey of discovery from central Java to remote Jailolo to encounter the youths of a marine paradise that is also a conflict zone of religious dogmas. Investing time and dialogue into a relationship – both artistic and personal – with his new ‘community’, Eko negotiates many layers of differences to create Cry Jailolo, a work that addresses ethics of ‘collaboration’ between ‘individual’ and the ‘collective’, and what is politically at stake in performance today.

In preparation for launching international co-production projects with other Asian nations, TPAM this year will be presenting various programs of performances, meetings and interviews in association with its partners from Japan and abroad.
Pichet Klunchun and Myself is one of the monumental landmarks of international collaboration in performing arts bringing the two different cultures together on stage, and is still a sizzling topic today after almost a decade since its premiere. About ANGELS, by Yujiro Sagami at TPAM 2012, is going to be restaged with a dancer from Thailand this time. The Chinese up and coming world-touring duo will premiere Miniascape after about two monthes long residency in Japan.
For the interview project we have invited a producer from Japan with extensive experience in producing international collaborations mainly with Europe. With a central focus on South East Asia, this project will be covering the entire region of Asia in the future. The videos of the interviews will be uploaded and archived on the Internet.

International collaboration, where artists from different countries work together to create a piece, has actively been carried out since the 1990s and produced a number of outcomes. That led public supporting systems from unilateral application to bilateral practice, and the awareness of the meaningfulness of systems that support art beyond their communal frameworks was raised. However, “conditions,” for instance, that an artist from the country that runs the system has to participate in the project can be an obstacle to ambitions that are bigger than “learning,” so sometimes the limitations of this kind of system is criticized as being “institutional.” On the other hand, co-production, where multiple groups support each [...]
