OzAsia Festival to be Australia’s major celebration of Asian arts and culture

OzAsia Festival to be Australia’s major celebration of Asian arts and culture
July 7, 2015

The Adelaide Festival Centre has revealed the new programming for this year's OzAsia Festival which runs from 24th September to 4th October.

This year's program features an array of performance works by artists at the cutting edge of contemporary Asia, with a focus on arts from Indonesia across the opening weekend followed by performances from countries including Japan, India, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Korea throughout the Festival.

There are 180 scheduled activities including more than 90 performances, eight exhibitions, 15 film screenings, nine talk events and a variety of workshops and other activities.

More than 270 professional artists will perform in Adelaide and more than 2,500 people will participate in a variety of community events, performances and workshops. More than 100,000 people are expected to attend OzAsia Festival in 2015 across a mix of free and ticketed events.

OzAsia Festival Director Joseph Mitchell says the Festival environment and atmosphere will spill out of Adelaide Festival Centre and into the surrounding Riverbank precinct with the Adelaide Night Noodle Markets forming a massive festival hub filled with food, free music and performances every night.

Mitchell explained "it's shaping up to be Australia's major celebration of arts and culture from Asia.”
