AmnAsia is a 7-day residency program that offers performing artists with asian backgrounds an opportunity to work in an environment surrounded by other performing artists with asian background and where they can share experiences, resources and knowledge with each other. It is also a space where they can support, as well as stimulate each other's artistic processes and works. At AmnAsia performance-making is not only about how we make works, but also about how we co-exist and thrive together. It is explicitly not production-oriented, but focuses on artistic processes and experimentations with ideas, approaches, ways of working, or whatever challenges or fascinates the artists. The artists have the autonomy to work with themes that concern them, as well as determine their own aesthetics and voices in their works. AmnAsia is a reminder of the risk of erasure that asian artists face in a predominantly white society and that we must resist it.
APAL@AmnAsia (5th Edition) takes place from 27th September to 3rd October 2022 and is supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
At the end of the residency, artists present their works-in-progress to the public at the Berlin Ringtheater. The final presentation of the 5th edition will take place on 3rd October 2022 at 20hrs.
