Program Structure

The program comprises these four categories.

YPAM Exchange will be held at BankART KAIKO and a hybrid event platform “Swapcard.” By hybrid event we refer to an in-person/virtual dual-layer event that aims to create “a unified experience across all attendees, both live and digital.”1

YPAM Direction and YPAM Joint Program are basically live performances mainly at KAAT Kanagawa Arts Theatre. Some of the performances or elements will be live streamed or digitally shared in YPAM Exchange.

YPAM Fringe is an open-call fringe festival that invites registration of live performances that are carried out in the Yokohama and Tokyo areas during the period of YPAM. We do not accept streaming-only shows, but hybrid shows are eligible. Please see the information of each show for its internet accessibility.

Registration and Tickets

We ask professional participants to register. The registrants will be eligible for professional-rate tickets for YPAM Direction as well as part of YPAM Joint Program and YPAM Fringe. Full in-person/virtual access to YPAM Exchange and support for making good use of YPAM across programs will also be offered. The deadline for registration is 23:59 on Saturday December 18, 2021 (UTC+9). The registration and access to Swapcard will be valid for a year.

Since you will be able to interact directly with other participants throughout the year, we will not provide a contact list as in the past. YPAM registrants will receive an email invitation to sign in to Swapcard 7-10 days before the YPAM (Dec. 1-19), or within 48 hours of registration after that time. Once signed in, you will be able to edit your account information and prepare for the exchange activities.

Non-professional audiences are invited to purchase regular-price tickets for YPAM Direction, YPAM Joint Program and YPAM Fringe. YPAM Exchange is accessible in-person. To purchase tickets sold by YPAM, audience registration is required.
