ADAM Artist Lab in Taipei & Bangkok (Thailand / Taiwan)

ADAM 8 - Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance

Since 2017, Taipei Performing Arts Center’s critical project ADAM (Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance) has worked with artists from across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond to build a network and platform of cross-culture and interdisciplinarity and continuously generated various artistic processes.

ADAM Artist Lab is a collaborative, artist-led, and research-based residency programme allowing artists with performative practices to think and work together, inventing new ideas and future collaborations. At the end of their residency, participating artists will give a series of public sharing events with their findings to local audiences and international professionals, as part of the ADAM Gathering.

After several iterations of accommodating international and local artists in Taipei as a cultural field to run the ADAM Artist Lab, for the very first time, the 2024 ADAM Artist Lab will be traveling outside Taiwan. Curated by artist and cultural leader Sasapin Siriwanij and in collaboration with BIPAM (Bangkok International Performing Arts Meeting), Bangkok will be the meeting point for research, encounters, exchanges and dialogues to expand the context of how Asia discovers Asia between Bangkok and Taipei.

Entitled ‘theirborhood’ (a coined word mixed with ‘their’ and ‘neighbourhood’), this collective and collaborative programme looks at experimental ways of navigating history, herstory and theirstory through space(s). Participating artists will be formed as a working group to visit curated sites, places, communities and neighborhoods to reimagine how the notion of history has shaped where we live in and question ways of sharing common grounds.

The programme will be divided into two phases in Bangkok (18-29 June 2024) and in Taipei (19 August – 1 September 2024). Selected artists have to participate in both phases as a whole project. A small public sharing event will be held at the end of the Bangkok residency; the artists will then continue the exploration and findings in Taipei. At the end of Taipei residency, a final public sharing will be presented as part of the ADAM Gathering.

ADAM provides an artist fee and per diem; accommodation for the entire programme period; and air tickets for economy-class round-trips to and from Bangkok and Taipei.
