Have some Tea with X60!

There is a specificity problem in today’s conversations around race: and the arts is not an exception. 

X60 will host an open and iterative conversation about the opportunities, challenges, and possibilities for international creative collaboration, in diverse communities of Asian performing arts practice, within Canada and abroad.

Drawing from the idea of a long table discussion, X60 artists invite you to come and openly discuss the historic barriers that exist for pan-Asian artists within collaborative frameworks in Canada. 

Is there a more sustainable way forward for pan-Asian learning and solidarity?

While all are welcome to attend, X60 specifically invites Asian artists working across all disciplines of performance to attend, bring your questions, and contribute to the conversation.

Formed in 2023 by performance-based artists, Emily Jung, Rinchen Dolma, and Michael Caldwell, X60 collective came together to explore and progress dramaturgical approaches and criticism for Asian diasporic stories in the performing arts. X60 gatherings are an ongoing series that welcome complex questions to the Tea Table, and attempt to navigate new pathways towards artistic research, creation, and international exchange.
