OzAsia Festival is Australia’s premier international arts festival focusing on Asia. 2016 will be the biggest and best festival yet. It’s all new, revamped and refreshed, including a twist on the much-loved Moon Lantern Festival. Under current Festival Director Joseph Mitchell, the annual program features the finest theatre, dance, music, film, talks and visual arts that Asia has to offer.
“There is a generation of young, bold, risk-taking artists who are creating genre-blurring performances that celebrate the immediacy and fast-paced culture of Asia in the 21st Century.” Festival Director Joseph Mitchell chats with Limelight Magazine
