Asia Series Vol.5: Trans-fields

Beyond Borders
Past and Future of the Asia Series

Launched at F/T14, the Asia Series has until now showcased performing arts each time from a different nation in the linguistically and culturally diverse region of Asia. What has emerged in the process of creative development and commissioning is a body of work and activities by multinational teams that effortlessly transcend the boundaries between disciplines and genres. This year’s fifth edition is titled “Trans-fields” and changes the format to introduce examples of work from across several nations. Screening documentation footage of the previous years of the series on a large screen, this event will reflect on both the current and future state of the performing arts in Asia.
