Acclaimed Australian performance-maker TAMARA SAULWICK has achieved significant recognition through her use of digital, mobile and analogue technologies in the creation of contemporary performance works for theatres and public spaces. ALTER, one of her representative interactive art pieces, is touring China in April 2018. This is the first project that Performing Lines (Australia) and Ping Pong Productions (China) will produce as part of the Four-Year Australia-China Performing Arts Exchange Program.

This tour supports the mission of the Australia-China Performing Arts Exchange Program, to broaden and deepen cultural exchange between the people of our two countries and represents our shared aim to increase understanding of and access to contemporary, independent performing arts between our countries.
