Asia Society at Asia TOPA | Salon Series: Dragon Ladies Don’t Weep (Melbourne)VIEW EVENT DETAILS
An Asia TOPA public event, in conversation with the stars of the Singaporean-Australian production
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. This event will be moderated by Liminal Magazine's Editor-in-Chief, Leah Jing McIntosh.
Date: Saturday 15 February 2020
Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: Theatre, The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Federation Square
