Aki Onda curated TPAM - Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama confirms dates

This year the event features a special project to restage three compositions of Filipino composer Jose Maceda

Now in its second decade, Asian performing arts platform TPAM has set the dates for its 2019 edition. It will take place from 9–17 February at venues across Yokohama, and this year once again is directed by Aki Onda who has organised a special project restaging three compositions of Filipino composer Jose Maceda (1917–2004). Those include Cassettes 100 choreographed and directed by Yoko Higashino and Toshio Kajiwara, and Music For Five Pianos and Two Pianos And Four Winds, both featuring pianists Aki Takahashi and Yuji Takahashi, and conductor Josefino Chino Toledo, all three of which previously collaborated with Maceda.

Also on the line up is Kyoto-based three-piece band Kukangendai who are due to release their debut on Ideologic Organ in 2019, plus performances from Lin Chi-Wei, Wang Hong-Kai, Gerard Lebik & Ryoko Akama, and Terre Thaemlitz with Deproduction.
