Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance (ADAM) Artist Lab

Dezeen Taipei Performing Arts Centre By OMA Ss 1

Presented by Performance Space, Taipei Arts Centre, West Kowloon Cultural District (HK), Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay (SG) and Creative New Zealand

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 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.  

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.
