NEW RESOURCE - Asian-Australian Performance Directory

Performance 4a proudly announces The Asian-Australian Performance Directory - a free online directory for performance related artists with skills working with Asian-Australian themes.

Regularly consulted by casting agents and directors, Performance 4a identified a need for a specialised database, to complement existing casting resources. The Asian-Australian Performance Directory is unique in that it will include:

  • professional and non-professional talent
  • a broad range of performance-related artists - actors, singers, dancers, musicians, designers, directors, choreographers, dramaturges, writers and
  • producers – with specialised skills and knowledge of Asia-Australia
  • and it’s completely free

The Asian-Australian Performance Directory can be accessed via the new Performance 4a website.

Performance 4a (formerly Theatre 4a) is a not for profit organisation dedicated to producing inspiring Asian-Australian performance. The new name reflects the company’s support for a broad range of performance, and the multidisciplinary nature of much contemporary theatre.

Led by Artistic Director Rick Lau and a high profile committee headed by writer, broadcaster and actor Annette Shun Wah, the company has staged productions at the Performance Space in Sydney and The Studio at the Sydney Opera House. Its productions have also toured Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Performance 4a’s dynamic new website and directory is a valuable knowledge base, with the latest news and information about Asian-Australian performance, and coming soon – an online forum. It’s not only a great way to find talent, but also fosters an exchange of ideas so artists can network, collaborate, promote and support one another’s creative endeavours.
