An Asia TOPA special event, in conversation with the stars of the Singaporean-Australian production

Dragon Ladies Don't Weep

How do you create a sonic portrait of a music icon in an intercultural context?

Join Asia Society Australia at the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts - Asia TOPA - for an in-depth exploration into the making of Dragon Ladies Don’t Weep, a Singaporean Australian work featuring avant-garde music icon Margaret Leng Tan exploring memory, time, control and loss.  '

Pianist Margaret Leng Tan, director Tamara Saulwick, composer Erik Griswold and dramaturg Kok Heng Leun share their experiences and challenges working on what became a very personal sonic memoir that pushed Margaret Leng Tan to connect her background in experimental music into an exploration of new territories in theatre.

Date: Saturday 15 February 2020
Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: NGV Australia Theatre, Federation Square
