IPAM Ė Indonesia Performing Arts Mart - has scheduled its third annual presentation in Bali June 6-10, 2005, commencing with a gala opening on the evening on Monday, June 6, 2005, at the Nusa Dua Beach Hotel & Spa.
Organized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism to showcase Indonesian performers to global arts presenters, the Mart serves both as a marketplace for theatrical bookings and as a forum for discussing issues related to public performance of the arts.
Open to the public, performers, and theatrical agents at no charge - the four day event is organized around a formal mart where contracts and specific engagements can be negotiated and a series of special performances by leading Indonesian arts groups at a variety of venues across the island.
During IPAM 2004, also held in Bali, a number of agreements were concluded for performance tours abroad by Indonesian traditional arts groups. The organizers of this year's event have said that they hope contracts concluded at IPAM 2005 will double over last year's negotiated engagements, estimated at a value of EURO 4 million.
Complete program details and schedules are available via the IPAM web site.
