International arts festivals are as much about facilitating artistic development and creative collaborations across the industry as they are about connecting artists with audiences.
Special Combination—an invitation–only choreographic and performance workshop—will bring together a cohort of artists from Asia and Australia to explore working processes and exchange first–hand experiences with special guest choreographers and directors.
Arts Centre Melbourne’s Asian Arts Program and Melbourne Festival have invited choreographer Gideon Obarzanek to facilitate Special Combination, which will also focus on connections: connecting participants and workshop artists with each other and with the Festival’s invited artists, producers and presenters.
The Festival performances of Right&Left will provide audiences an opportunity to enjoy the work of featured participants.
Presented by Melbourne Festival and Art Centre Melbourne, Asian Performing Arts Program in association with Playking Foundation.
