The 2022 edition of the Asia-Europe Cultural Festival, Cultures Connect, goes online from 16 to 22 December 2022 on culture360.asef.org.
This online showcasing presents two special events:
Am I Bruce Lee (香蕉人 / Banana person: yellow outside, white inside.)
“Did you know that Bruce Lee was a Cha Cha Cha champion?” This is how Junyi Sun describes his solo project, which came about as a result of his curiosity about the popular 1970s figure, regarded by many as a legend. Sun analyses the points of connection and parallels he has with the artist, from origins and professional careers to ideals and desires, bringing them to life in this personal show, halfway between dance and martial arts.
Public Forum: What Future for Arts Festivals?
This discussion, presented in the frame of the Asia-Europe Festival in Brussels in November 2022, features speakers from Asia & Europe – including festival directors, artists, producers, cultural practitioners – debating on the status of arts festivals given the impact of the pandemic, relevance of emerging new trends such as slow mobility, need for deeper cultural exchange.
Watch the events online here, available until 22 December 2022.
