What is Asia TOPA?

In celebration of Australia’s connection to contemporary Asia, Asia TOPA provides platforms for various artists and cultural groups throughout the region to express themselves in the four-month long festival.

A vitally fresh and always unpredictable event, Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts offers a city-wide window into the creative imaginations fuelling the many cultures of the region.

The annual inaugural event was brought about through a ground-breaking collaboration by leading arts organisations from across Melbourne and beyond.

It believes that cultural engagement is key to expressing who we are, where we’ve come from and how we connect with each other across the Asia-Pacific region.

The dazzling array of artists featured in Asia TOPA will provide new ways of understanding the deep connections that run between us all.

Asia TOPA bridges diverse art-forms including performance, visual, screen and literary arts.

Asia TOPA runs from January to April this year.

Tickets can be purchased online or by visiting the box office of participating venues.
