City of Adelaide Lights Up For The 12th Annual OzAsia Festival

Tess Todd

OzAsia Festival returns for its 12th year; although it already holds the title of Australia’s leading international arts festival engaging with Asia, this one's set to launch its most impressive line-up yet! Running from 25 October to 11 November, the expansive and innovative program attracts critical acclaim, and is expected to gather 190,000 people over the duration. This year, 20 countries will be represented with feature work from 817 artists.

Planning to be the most notable of the festivals to date for contemporary arts from Asia, this year sees a record of 60 unique events being featured; including 8 major visual arts exhibitions, 55 talk events, 34 film screenings, 66 workshops and 22 events exclusive to Adelaide, scheduled across the eighteen-day period. With six world premieres, 20 Australian premieres, along with free and ticketed options, there’s no excuse not to get involved in this culturally brilliant arena.

So, what can you expect from the “most expansive and diverse program to date”? OzAsia Festival Artistic Director Joseph Mitchell explains that “OzAsia Festival is the place to be to experience the best contemporary arts and culture across Asia.”

Major headliners include the legendary Chinese playwright and director Stan Lai’s beloved modern classic Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land and the Australian premiere of Korea's international hit Dancing Grandmothers. Returning with international acclaim, Nassim Soleimanpour is set to delight with his newest work, Nassim, which features a new actor each night, not knowing the script until stepping onto the stage.

Artists of South Australia feature prominently in the program this year with a series of international collaboration debuts. Intimate dance performance, Close Company, is the work of Alison Curry and Singapore’s RAW Moves. World premiere of Adelaide Composer David Kotlowy’s Patina features local artists Ade Suharto, Gamelan In Situ along with Japanese dancer Shin Sakuma.

For the younger audience there is an immersive theatre experience, Cerita Anak (Child’s Story), combining song, shadow imagery, puppetry and sound with all the life of the ocean.

In a massive takeover this year, OzAsia comes to a final weekend crescendo with the completely free Jaipur Literature Festival. A combination over 50 authors, journalists, activists and thinkers make up this amazing event. Including the likes of Indian author Shobhaa De, writer and comedian Sami Shah and the festivals own Artistic Directors and writers, William Darymple and Namita Gokhale. The JLF brings you the best of the artistic, literary and culinary heritage of South Asia and the world through ideas, food, music, talks, and books this section of the festival runs from Friday, November 9 to Sunday, November 11.    

Of course, everyone’s favourite part of OzAsia is back with the Moon Lantern Parade, bigger and better this year, hitting Elder Park with its explosion of lights and colour on Saturday, November 27 from 3-9pm. Featuring more than 40 different handmade lanterns and an impressive firework display there is ample vantage points for everyone to view this festival moment. There will be plenty of amenities and food carts throughout with roving performances and free entertainment from local artists.

With only 18 days and so much packed in prepare to be swept off your feat this OzAsia Festival season!

The full OzAsia line up is available online from 7pm 14th August on the official website with the full line up for Jaipur Literature Festival to be announced in September.
