Applications are now open for the 2022 edition of Asia Connection: Producers Camp (ACPC), a joint event held by the National Theater & Concert Hall (NTCH) of Taiwan, Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay of Singapore, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre of Japan and South Korea’s National Theater of Korea.
From Feb. 1 until March 31, 2022, ACPC is welcoming applicants’ proposals for the four-week online training camp, in which participants engage with experienced mentors and peers, case study and discuss past successful productions, and take part in workshops. The aim of the gathering is to help participants develop and polish the necessary skills needed for performing arts productions, whether it’s storytelling, strategic marketing, or artist-to-artist communication.
Each participant will have the opportunity to pitch their project to a panel of curators, venue representatives and producers. The NTCH and its partners will select the most promising proposals after the camp completes. The producers behind the selected projects will receive a grant from ACPC partners, in the form of financial and material support, to bring their performance to the stage.
We welcome Asia-based producers with more than five years of experience in international productions to submit proposals related to Asian issues, multinational Asian co-productions, online creations, concept touring, or virtual presentations. A maximum of 15 applicants will be accepted for ACPC 2022.
About the Asia Connection: Producers Camp
Asia Connection: Producers Camp (ACPC) is a joint venture formed in 2021 by the National Theater & Concert Hall (NTCH) of Taiwan, Esplanade-Theatres on the Bay of Singapore, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre of Japan and South Korea’s National Theater of Korea. ACPC’s main goal is to nurture and support Asia-based producers by providing mentoring, keynote speeches and group discussions. At the workshop, participating producers work with established peers to develop and hone all necessary skills related to performing arts production. Participants are also given an opportunity to become a grant recipient, which gives them access to funding and material support from ACPC partners. With ACPC, the NTCH and its partnering venues hope to seek new possibilities in pan-Asian collaboration and co-productions in order to deepen the dialogue between Asia-Pacific performing artists and the world.
