Chinese Australian concert in Brisbane tunCLOUD: Nicholas Ng, Julian Wong & Anna Yen
Following the success of their Woodford Festival debut, Queensland Conservatorium’s Dr Nicholas Ng (artistic advisor to the BrisAsia Festival) and performer Julian Wong come together in an evening of traditional and contemporary Chinese music and movement with Brisbane-based Anna Yen.
A performer, movement teacher, theatre maker and director, Anna is known for her acclaimed one-woman show Chinese Take Away and its film adaptation, which toured to festivals in Asia, Europe, Australia and USA. She is currently working on The Serpent’s Table with Griffin Theatre Company and Performance 4a.
Julian is Perth-based physical performer and musician. He was a member of the band Sirocco, which was engaged in a Musica Viva interstate tour of Australian schools (2007-2010). Julian is a member of Shaun Parker & Company and the Perth-based duo ‘Rahu’.
Nicholas is a musician/researcher who has performed at venues such as Merkin Concert Hall (New York City), and has been commissioned by ensembles including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. His music may be heard on the radio (ABC), in dance and theatre productions, and art exhibitions such as the Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art.
The tunCLOUD trio came together this year to develop the performative outcome of Dr Ng’s 2012 Scholars and Artists in Residence project at the National Film and Sound Archive, where he examined Chinese representation in Australian film and photographic history. They appeared for the first time at the official launch of the BrisAsia Festival.
tunCLOUD is an embodiment of Queensland Conservatorium’s aim to engage with the world at large, beginning with ENCOUNTERS: China (6-9 May 2010), a four-day Australia-China festival and continuing with ENCOUNTERS: India (13-19 May 2013) (www.encountersfestival.com.au).
