The Serpent’s Table
What’s Australia’s place in the Asian century? You could do worse than to refer to Australians of Asian background. But the cultural landscape has a yawning gap as far as investigations of contemporary Asian Australian experiences is concerned. My main gig this year is to run Performance 4a, an organisation with the twin aims of producing performance that explores Asian Australian themes, and supporting the professional development of Australian artists of Asian background working in the performance area. A project I’m really excited about is The Serpent’s Table, which combines storytelling, performance, theatrical installation and FOOD! The exceptional creative team behind the project is pictured here. Griffin Theatre Company is our creative partner in the project, and we hope to have it ready for public consumption in January 2014.
