FESTIVAL - Inaugural OzAsia Festival (21 Sept - 7 Oct 2007; Adelaide, SA)

The inaugural OzAsia Festival will be held from 21 September to 7 October 2007. The OzAsia Moon Lantern Festival will take place on the evening of 25 September.

The OzAsia Cultural Symposium will take place on 22nd and 23rd September and features Mr Wakao Koike from The Japan Foundation, Prof. Nicholas Jose from Adelaide University, Dr. Lachlan Strahan from DFAT, writer Ms Merlinda Bobis and OzAsia Patron Mr Hieu Van Le.

The OzAsia Festival will present and celebrate work from Australians who identify with an Asian cultural heritage; collaborative work between Australian and Asian artists; and a cross-section of the cultures of Asia, both traditional and contemporary.

OzAsia features remarkable performances from some of Australia’s most eminent artists, including William Yang, Leigh Warren, Hung Le, Joanna Dudley, Hossein Valamanesh, Yumi Umiumare, and Gabriella Smart. Our visual arts program is proud to show artists who have endeavoured to understand the complexities of not only cross-cultural arts production, but also the artistic relationships between live performance and visual outcomes.
