BrisAsia LIVE, Brisbane’s premier intercultural creative residency, explores dynamic perspectives on interdisciplinary art-making, creative expression and cultural knowledge sharing. This year’s residency explores the traditional Japanese philosophy of aesthetics known as Wabi-sabi—a creative world view centred in the acceptance of transience and imperfection.

Renowned Mongolian musician Bukhu, Japanese-Australian visual artist Elysha Rei, Tibetan Musician Tenzin Choegyal, Japanese pianist, composer and performance artist Momo Hamada, Fijian-Indian producer, DJ & tabla musician Sai and program director guitarist/composer Dr Anthony Garcia will explore the mediums of live improvised music, visual and performance art & installation.

The general public can catch a rare glimpse of the creative process via an open rehearsal held on the Turbine Platform, on Thursday 09 February 2023 at 1pm-2pm. Watch artists rehearse live in preparation for the premier of Wabi-Sabi. An ideal opportunity for creatives young and old to experience this unique intercultural arts residency. An intimate Q & A session will offer the audience the chance to interact with the artists and discuss the creative process in a relaxed conversational manner.

Experience the premiere performance of Wabi-Sabi, a synthesis of ancient and contemporary improvised sound and visual art, on Friday 10 February 2023 at 6.00pm.

BrisAsia LIVE is delivered as part of BrisAsia Festival 2023. BrisAsia Festival 2023 is presented by Brisbane City Council and produced by Sounds Across Oceans.
