Asia TOPA, the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts, is hosting a quarterly event series titled Asia TOPA Radar, starting at the University of Melbourne on 30 November this year. While the festival will return in full force in February and March 2025 helmed by new Creative Director Jeff Khan, this event series seeks to bring together artists and audiences to uncover new art and culture from the Asia Pacific region.
Asia TOPA Radar will provide a platform for Asia Pacific artists, thinkers, DJs and musicians to stage informal presentations and performances. A number of the eight leading artists who are participating in the Asia TOPA festival creative development program will engage with the quarterly series. The development program encourages research, experimentation and creation, while allowing the artists to familiarise themselves with the context of the third iteration of Asia TOPA in 2025.
