PAMS Choice, the PAMS official showcase, introduces outstanding works of performing art by Korean artists, highlighting contemporary trends and celebrating artistic virtuosity. Selected annually in an open competition by a review panel that includes international experts, PAMS Choice finalists win the chance to be featured for the duration of PAMS and promoted at various international performing arts events.
They also receive wide-ranging support to take their productions to international stages, including the ARKO-PAMS Grant, provided in partnership with ARKO to cover international airfare as well as cargo transport costs; subtitle translation support from the Literature Translation Institute of Korea;
and training and consulting in strategy development for foreign market entry.
From 2005 to 2017, a total of 199 works earned the PAMS Choice designation, receiving strategic support for advancement overseas and going on to great
success in Asia, Oceania, the Americas and Europe.
