TPAM Showcase: February 28 [Sat] - March 8 [Sun]
TPAM (Tokyo Performing Arts Market) is a market of performing arts such as theater, dance and music. First organized in 1995, it will be celebrating its 13th meeting this time and drawing more and more attention of performing arts industries across the world.
“Presenters” who connect artists to audience such as those who are in charge of theaters and public halls, directors of festivals, producers, promoters, agents and company managers gather from Japan and the world.
Since it’s inception, TPAM has been designed to be an ideal place to distribute works by gathering national and international theater practitioners, and introducing emerging artists in a unique and innovative way.
■ Booth Presentation
“Booth Presentation”, which allows you to meet many people in a short time, is an opportunity to appeal your work and exchange information using documents and videos. Exhibitors are limited to 50 groups so that sellers and buyers can intensively communicate.
■ Visual Presentation
In “Visual Presentation,” artists and companies introduce their concrete projects for realization of them using a large screen. A variety of productions of around 10 groups from each of the fields of theatre, dance, and music are shown efficiently.
■ TPAM Showcase
We will introduce performances and studio showings that will be being presented from February 28 to March 8 in Tokyo area as “TPAM Showcase”. Participation in TPAM is not limited to the events in TPAM venue.
From issues about domestic systems related to performing arts to introducing activities of international performing arts markets and festivals, we plan practical seminars and lectures to consider the current situation of performing arts every year.
