YPAM is an international platform aimed at both

  • professionals, who connect works of art and audience through management, support, venue, criticism, research, and various other forms of activity, and
  • audience, who vitalize the environment and stimulate artists by appreciating / reflecting on / talking about the performing arts

YPAM (Yokohama International Performing Arts Meeting) is a place where professionals from various places of 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 the performing arts. Established in 1995 as Tokyo Performing Arts Market and moved in 2011 to the “Creative City” Yokohama. Reinforced its focus on Asia and started to involve itself in Asian co-production in 2015. Having survived for more than 25 years, the event has become internationally recognized as one of the most influential performing arts platforms in Asia.
