Through enhancing discourse, the project aims to cultivate an active spectatorship in the Asinan contemporary performing/performance arts scenes. Researching the social, cultural, political, religious, economic and other interrelated factors influencing art in various regions in Asia, the project aspires to deepen contextual understanding as well as trans-regional discussions.
