After a whirlwind national tour in 2019, In Between Two lands in Wollongong for the very first time thanks to Merrigong Theatre Company. Trailblazing artists Joel Ma (TZU’s Joelistics) and ARIA-nominated producer James Mangohig are icons of Australian hip-hop, but their family histories are as complex and layered as their lyrics. 

Beautifully enhanced by rare home movie footage, family photographs and original live music, In Between Two navigates the rich territory between two cultures, two generations and two musicians reaching their peak. Weaving together stories of mixed-race families, the songs of contemporary Australia, and the politics of belonging, this work is as potent as it is inspiring. In Between Two returns for a very limited season at IPAC's Bruce Gordon Theatre in Wollongong so book now to avoid disappointment!

Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP) is a national cultural leader in presenting contemporary Asian Australian stories.

Our stories are diverse and complex.

Our stories come from uniquely personal experiences, but resonate with many.

Our stories are for everyone.

Our activities and projects develop, nurture and champion Asian Australian artists to take their place on the main stages nationally and internationally.

A resident company of Carriageworks, our work has resulted in shows in Sydney, Adelaide, Darwin, as well as AsiaTOPA and OzAsia festivals, and in the seasons of major theatre companies such as Sydney Theatre Company and Belvoir, yet we remain relatively unknown as the powerhouse behind these stories.

Please help us magnify our profile by making a tax-deductible donation to one of our giving programs. Your contribution will support us to achieve much greater reach and impact.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 by 31 May 2020. Why? Because if we reach the target, every dollar will be matched dollar by Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus1 Program, which means your support has double impact!

On Thursday 14 November, we will be launching our giving campaign titled 100+ Voices Speak, at CAAP's end of year event, the Longhouse: Works in Progress at Carriageworks. See brand new works-in-progress by 4 exciting Asian Australian artists, grab some nibbles and drinks, and celebrate your Asian Australian performance community. We do hope to see you there.
