Writing China for Performance

Feature image for event

At the beginning of 2017 four theatre productions exploring Chinese themes were presented on main stages in Australia – Little Emperors by Australian playwright Lachlan Philpot at Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre; Sydney Theatre Company’s large-scale production of Chimerica by UK writer Lucy Kirkwood; Single Asian Female – the debut of Chinese Australian writer Michelle Law at La Boite Theatre in Brisbane; and CAPP’s The Backstories, a theatrical storytelling show at Adelaide Festival. A coincidence – or does this herald a new future where Australian writing for the stage turns its focus to the connections between Australia and China?

OzAsia Festival partners with Open State to present a daylong series of transcultural, transmedia events. Writing China is a literary banquet of sound, text and image from Australia and Greater China – fill your plate and think outside the takeaway box.
