The aim was simple: connect up-and-coming Japanese artists to the producers and theater buffs who might be able to support their work.

More than 20 years on, the organizers have changed venues and ditched the name — but kept the acronym. And that is why the Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama is still referred to as TPAM for short.
