LONGHOUSE @Performing Lines



Can we make the future of the performing arts together?


Art can be a powerful tool for social change. What do we expect from the performing arts industry as makers
and as audience members? Does your artistic practice feel like it's making a difference?
What do we want from our industry and does it deliver? How do we imagine the future of the industry as an
effective group of changemakers?

Come and speak your thoughts and your passions with arts rabble-rousers Pippa Bailey, Producer at
Performing Lines, and Performance 4a's Executive Producer Annette Shun Wah in a facilitated conversation
about the future we want - and how to make it through urgent and compelling art.


This event will be hosted by Performing Lines , producers of transformative new Australian performance for
over thirty years. The Longhouse is Performance 4a's networking and information sharing program aimed at
building the Asian Australian performance community.

All artists interested in performance work about Asian Australian themes are welcome.

Who Speaks for Me?


Performance 4a teams up with the brand spanking new National Theatre of Parramatta for our next production, a new storytelling show about the complexities of language. "Who Speaks For Me" will be co-directed by William Yang and Annette Shun Wah, the team behind Performance 4a's successful shows Stories Then & Now and Stories East & West.

We’ve all had those “lost in translation” moments – some may be frustrating, some funny, some painful.  While the theme is language, what we really want to hear about is the personal experience of making a home in a new country.

We’re looking for storytellers to join the cast. Do you have a good story? Are you Asian Australian, living or working in western Sydney? Then we’d love to hear from you. Stage experience is NOT required – just a willingness to tell a good story. This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
