Spanning a huge spread of artistic mediums, the second iteration of Asia TOPA encompasses everything from visual arts to performance in an effort to spotlight Asian culture, tradition and creatives. Taking over various venues across Melbourne, the program will bring two unique performances to Abbotsford Convent in February and March.

Featuring four dancers, projections and live music, this multi-disciplinary work weaves through varying cultures, timelines, and emotions. It’s happening at North Magdalen Laundry, Abbotsford Convent from February 21 – February 24.

Melding cooking and storytelling to showcase the role that food plays in our lives, Double Delicious is an immersive experience bound to arouse the senses. Presented by cooking legend Elizabeth Chong alongside author and journalist Benjamin Law, this is a culinary show like no other.
