Opening Festival: Asia Culture Center Theater
  • Asia Culture Center Theater
  • Sep 2015

What are the most vital means to discuss Asia’s now? Asian Arts Theatre recognizes the importance of this question and summons different voices articulating it. Asian Arts Theatre supports artists with unique and stirring visions, artists who can evoke, respond to, and reshape the most urgent aesthetic and social concerns of Asia today. Asian Arts Theatre’s Opening Festival will be an organic attempt to pronounce these visions and directions.

On September 4, the festival will begin its three-week celebration of multiplicity, hosting thirty-three international presentations, including premieres of twelve Asian productions/co-productions. The festival will present perspectives beyond the geographical and political boundaries of Asia to create an arena of true international communication of ideas.
