We are delighted to partner with Asia Society and Arts Centre Melbourne for our February Salon, as part of the Asia TOPA Salon Series.

How do you create a sonic portrait of a music icon in an intercultural context?

Join Asia Society Australia at Asia TOPA for an in-depth exploration into the making of Dragon Ladies Don’t Weep, a Singaporean-Australian work featuring avant-garde music icon Margaret Leng Tan exploring memory, time, control and loss. Pianist Margaret Leng Tan, director Tamara Saulwick, composer Erik Griswold and dramaturg Kok Heng Leun share their experiences and challenges working on what became a very personal sonic memoir that pushed Margaret Leng Tan to connect her background in experimental music into an exploration of new territories in theatre.

Moderator: Leah Jing

Panellists: Margaret Leng Tan, Tamara Saulwick, Kok Heng Leun, Erik Griswold
