Striving to bring together artists and audiences to uncover new art and culture from the Asia Pacific region, Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts has announced the launch of its quarterly event series, Asia TOPA Radar.
Commencing on 30 November at the University of Melbourne, Asia TOPA Radar will showcase a series of diverse Asia Pacific artists, thinkers, DJs and musicians.
The event will also feature artists including The Pacific Sisters, Luke George and Thukral & Tagra, who are set to deliver a lively performance for attending media and guests.
Asia TOPA Radar will see artists share what is inspiring them in a series of presentations, followed by additional performances and live music.
"We're thrilled to be launching the first edition of Asia TOPA Radar this November. Radar is specially curated by myself and the Asia TOPA team to be a fun, insightful and inspiring evening where we introduce you to some of the most celebrated and dynamic artists from across the Asia Pacific," said creative director of Asia TOPA, Jeff Khan.
"I couldn't be more proud to be launching the inaugural Radar event with presentations by three of the most brilliant and inventive artist collectives from the region. The Pacific Sisters, Luke George & Daniel Kok, and Thukral & Tagra have long inspired us with their unique, inclusive and surprising approaches to art and performance making – come and hear more about what they do and what makes them tick, creatively."
Asia TOPA Radar will also feature leading artists from across the Asia Pacific who are participating in an Asia TOPA festival creative development, which involves research, experimentation and creation. The creative development will also provide artists the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the context for the third iteration of Asia TOPA held from February-March 2025.
Spotlighting a new wave of art, culture and ideas Asia TOPA Radar is aiming to bring together both creatives and communities, through engaging performances and informal presentations.
