PSPACE JOINS ADAM CONSORTIUM AS INTERNATIONAL PARTNER
Performance Space becomes International Consortium Partner for the Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance (ADAM)
15 August – 2 September 2018
Initiated in 2017 by Taipei Arts Centre the Asia Discovers Asia Meeting brings together West Kowloon Cultural District (HK), Performance Space (AU), Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay (SG) and Creative New Zealand to form a new network for artistic development and international collaboration in contemporary performance.
The initiative consists of an Artist Lab, which brings together 10 practitioners from across the region to participate in a two-week program in Taipei facilitated by Ding-Yun Huang (Taipei) and Henry Tan (Bangkok) and an Annual Meeting. The discursive and studio-based Artist Lab will encourage artists to work together and aims to pave the way for future partnerships. Performance Space is supporting Sydney-based artist Justin Shoulder to participate and begin the development of a new performance project. Australian choreographer Angela Goh will also attend the Lab, supported by ADAM.
The fortnight will culminate in the ADAM Annual Meeting, a four-day program of public events bringing together all consortium partners, as well as independent producers and artists from across the region. This platform will include performances, work-in-progress showings by Lab artists, as well as roundtable discussions, keynote lectures and a screening programme designed to explore and discuss the pressing socio-political issues facing contemporary performance in Asia. As part of the ADAM Annual Meeting, Performance Space Artistic Director Jeff Khan will be hosting a roundtable on ‘Feminist and Queer Conversations in Contemporary Asia-Pacific Performance.
The ADAM Annual Meeting runs from 30 August to 2 September and is open for anyone to attend, register your interest today and we’ll see you in Tapei!
