In some traditional societies, the longhouse is a meeting place where the village gathers to share stories, make plans and bond as a community. Launched in August 2015, Performance 4a’s Longhouse program is a series of regular events where those with an interest in contemporary Asian Australian performance gather to play, learn, share, create, collaborate and network. It has quickly become a creative hub leading the conversation about cultural diversity on our stages. Enthusiastically received by colleagues throughout the theatre sector, The Longhouse has quickly become a creative hub leading the conversation about cultural diversity on our stages.
