Unique in its approach, this five-day intensive is tailored to the artists and their needs, developing strong relationships between artists and with the partner organisations. This initiative of Contemporary Asian Australian Performance champions Asian Australian artists by deepening their practice through peer-to-peer learning, workshops, masterclasses and meetings. 

It's an opportunity to:

  • Expand your creative practice in an environment that encourages experimentation
  • Enrich your knowledge of theatre and performance practice 
  • Meet fellow artists and potential future collaborators
  • Engage and work directly with partner companies and their artists
