What does Asian Australian performance need right now?


For our first Longhouse of 2018, we handed the mic to our Asian-Australian performance community at an open forum at Sydney's Carriageworks.

Host Jennifer Wong, guest speaker Cheryle Yin-Lo (artistic director Sydney Asian Theatre Festival 1994-1999) and CAAP's Executive Producer Annette Shun Wah, took a look at what came before, and ways to continue the momentum for Asian-Australian performance in 2018 and beyond.

For the first time, we have recorded a podcast on the night for you to catch up on or revisit!

There are three parts to the podcast:

  • Cheryle Yin-Lo on the Sydney Asian Theatre Festival in the 1990s
  • CAAP Executive Producer Annette Shun Wah with a Year in Review of 2017
  • Open Forum - What's next for Asian Australian Performance?

What's next?
