BrisAsia 2024 – Residency
ABOUT THE SHOW
BrisAsia LIVE, Brisbane’s premier intercultural creative residency, explores dynamic perspectives on interdisciplinary art-making, creative expression and cultural knowledge sharing.
This year’s live performance is a creative interpretation of the theme ‘The Shape of Us’ — an intention to transcend barriers, work in synergy and find a common shape to expression that binds and connects all.
Featuring renowned Indian Classical Mohiniattam dancer Bindu Rajendran, versatile violinist and artist lead Chi Lui Flora Wong, Vietnamese-Australian harpist and artist Lake Kelly, talented Henna artist Sarala, brilliant percussionist Tsoof Baras and breath-taking Chinese folk and classical soprano Zi Wang. Supported by a team of local emerging talent, thereby enhancing the depth and diversity of creative expression.
This event is a culmination of a 3-day artist immersive residency at Brisbane Powerhouse that will celebrate deep artistic expression and synergistic collaboration.
