In its second iteration, Asia TOPA: Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts returns to celebrate the creative imagination of artists and cultures in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia TOPA’s public program is presented in partnership with the University of Melbourne, MPavilion, Asialink Arts, Consortium and Program Partners. The close to 50 public programs invite you to connect more deeply with the artists and works in the festival through a series of creative interventions, artist talks and panel discussions, masterclasses and industry events. From conversations about the interplay of art and politics to explorations of art making, the public program is an opportunity to explore the broader issues that shape contemporary daily life in the Asia-Pacific region.
