Asia TOPA: Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Arts is an artistic celebration of Australia's relationship with contemporary Asia. Vital, fresh and always unpredictable, Asia TOPA offers a city-wide window onto the creative imaginations fuelling the many cultures of the region.

The Asia Triennial of Performing Arts features numerous dance works from all over the region. China’s avant-garde Tao Dance Theatre performs two pieces from Tao Ye’s Straight Line Trilogy; in Eko Supriyanto’s Balabala, women combine dance with martial arts while his Cry Jailolo is a paean to endangered nature; Javanese music duo Senyawa together with Dance­north and Lucy Guerin Inc present Attractor, a “trance-noise odyssey”; and in Dancing with Death, Thai choreographer Pichet Klunchun creates a space between life and afterlife inspired by the Phi Ta Khon ghost festival; and and the world premier of Wang Chong's "Little Emperors." Jen Shyu will have a solo recital on February 18.
