Since the Longhouse program was established by Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP) in 2015, it’s become a space of togetherness, sharing, and connection for Asian Australian people in the performing arts in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth. Since then, we’ve seen the spark of new projects, collaborations, new conversations, and friendships.
 
The Longhouse is now moving online. This means we can keep the spark alive from our own homes - wherever you are around the country. So we thought we’d ask you: what kind of Longhouse program would you like to see?
 
Be part of the conversation about what the Longhouse will look like in 2020, and how we can continue building our Asian Australian performance community from here. Take this 5 minute survey and help create a Longhouse program that speaks to you. Step out of your iso-bubble and to stay connected with Asian Australian artists and arts workers from around the country.
 
Get your responses in by 21 April and you’ll play a big part in shaping CAAP’s first ever national Longhouse. (Stay tuned for details!). Any questions or concerns, shoot an email through to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

"...a lush and evocative series of skilfully narrated performances, tantalising all the senses whilst also delivering moments of real human connection." ★★★★1/2 Cara Anderson, Limelight Magazine.

"Double Delicious was a mouth-watering night of great food and banter. We had all come together as a community and experienced a real treat: some fun and heartfelt storytelling wrapped up in excellent food from diverse cultures. This show had been a satiating and satisfying experience- a flavourful blend of the best things about food and theatre. Yum!" ★★★★1/2 Natalie Salvo, The AU Review

"...deeply moving and gently provocative, turning focus to Australia’s multiculturalism and the way that notions of authenticity are shaped by our world." ★★★★ Ben Neutze, Time Out.


"...a thoroughly delightful celebration of a culinary coming of age." Reviews By Judith.

"Double Delicious really is a theatre experience for all the senses. Five wonderful storytellers take turns bringing to life a tale from their past, all while slicing, dicing and enticing." Alana Kaye, Theatre Now.

Double Delicious heads to Geelong Arts Centre 19-22 February and Abbotsford Convent 27 February - 1 March for Asia Topa. Don't miss out. Book your tickets today.

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.
