The 2011 program features 446 artists from Japan, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Tibet, Thailand, Vietnam, and the best from Australia. The festival features the much-loved Moon Lantern Festival, 11 shows, a banquet, a forum, a keynote lecture, 25 film screenings and 5 exhibitions. Additionally there are 6 world premiers, 9 Australian premiers, 7 South Australian premiers and 14 Adelaide exclusives, as well as the new area of fashion and design being explored this year.
OzAsia Festival’s Festival Director Jacinta Thompson says; “This year the festival program will showcase Japan, allowing us to explore this culture deeply in a year where the country has been in the spotlight for tragic reasons. Additionally, this year’s festival once again promises to entertain, challenge and invite cross cultural dialogue and I encourage you to come and enjoy the wonderful cultural offerings.”
