TO HAVE FRIENDS COME FROM AFAR IS HAPPINESS, IS IT NOT? ANALECTS OF CONFUCIUS

Jay Weatherill

PREMIER OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA

True engagement is not a series of business transactions. It must be motivated by more than commercial instinct. Our Government encourages a complete approach to international engagement.

Contemporary Shandong has been bestowed with a rich cultural heritage. It is known as a cradle of cultural and artistic achievement and is well known as being the birthplace of Confucius. We in South Australia are fortunate to have the opportunity to experience the product of this extraordinary cultural tradition without leaving Adelaide!

The objective of the OzAsia Festival is to strengthen the connection between Australia and its Asian neighbours, through the arts. It celebrates the important contributions that people from different Asian nations have made to our country’s identity and culture.

The OzAsia Festival has become a nationally and internationally renowned event and has become an important marker for how South Australia is perceived internationally.

It is well understood in China that true friendship is projected through politics, commerce and culture. OzAsia Festival 2014 reflects our growing friendship with China and in particular, with the people of Shandong.

The Shandong focus of OzAsia Festival 2014 is providing us with a unique experience that will also help cultivate commercial and social opportunities in a populous, affluent and culturally significant region of China.

This year’s OzAsia Festival is supported by a Memorandum of Agreement between Adelaide Festival Centre and the Shandong Department of Culture and will focus on works from Shandong.

In Asia, cultural exchange and collaboration often complement political and economic partnership. OzAsia helps promote South Australia to the peoples of Asia.

The OzAsia Festival has become an important event on the South Australian cultural calendar, and is a wonderful showcase of the rich artistic offering from Asia in theatre, dance, music, film, literature, exhibitions and food.

I am privileged and greatly honoured to be the Patron of the OzAsia Festival. This unique festival opens the hearts and minds of all South Australia to the rich tapestry of cultures and arts of Asia.

The Festival’s program includes Australian artists who identify with an Asian heritage, as well as traditional and contemporary artists from Asia and unique cross-cultural collaborations. The OzAsia Festival has become the premier Australian cultural event based on works from the Asian region.

This year, Shandong Province, China, is the Festival’s focus. Shandong has played a major role in Chinese history from the beginning of Chinese civilization and has outstanding artistic and cultural strengths. We welcome the celebration of Shandong for the 2014 OzAsia Festival.

The OzAsia Festival has grown over the past eight years and has been embraced by local Asian communities and mainstream audiences alike. It has enriched the experience of South Australian audiences by providing a more diverse range of artistic expression while also helping our understanding of Asian culture and traditions. And where the arts flourish, so too does cultural understanding, a vital ingredient for harmonious communities.

The OzAsia Festival is unique in Australia and is a source of pride. As ever, there will be the Festival’s free public centrepiece, the Moon Lantern Parade in Elder Park, to mark the 15th day of the eighth lunar month. The Moon Lantern Parade brings together people of all ages and is a celebration of inclusiveness and a symbol of the harmony and brightness of our cultural diversity. The event, which attracts over 20,000 people, is full of cultural and educational workshops and community performance groups, culminating in the magnificent lantern parade. MINISTER FOR THE ARTS

OzAsia has become a much loved and important part of our cultural calendar and provides an exciting forum for our glorious city to embrace and celebrate our cultural diversity in South Australia. PATRON, OZASIA FESTIVAL LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR SOUTH AUSTRALIA CHAIRMAN, SOUTH AUSTRALIAN MULTICULTURAL AND ETHNIC AFFAIRS COMMISSION

Following the historic agreement signed last year between Adelaide Festival Centre and the Shandong Government’s Department of Culture, this year’s OzAsia Festival is presenting a wide range of unique and significant works from Shandong that would otherwise never be seen in Australia. The agreement confirmed a joint commitment to continue supporting the cultural exchange between South Australia and Shandong Province. It laid the foundations for a long-term, cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship. This marks a significant step in the evolution of the OzAsia Festival and the role it can play in positioning South Australia in our region. This cultural initiative with Shandong has received much support and encouragement from the Premier and State Government, for which we are very grateful.

Guo Shuqing GOVERNOR OF SHANDONG PROVINCE On the occasion of the opening of the OzAsia Festival, on behalf of the People’s Government of Shandong Province and over 97 million people of Confucius’ homeplace, I hereby extend my warm congratulations to the OzAsia Festival and the Focus on Shandong program, and express my sincere appreciation for the efforts made by the Government of South Australia and the people from all walks of life to ensure the program to be successfully held. According to the memorandum signed between Shandong Government’s Department of Culture and Adelaide Festival Centre Trust in 2013, Shandong has elaborately organized diverse activities, including the acrobatic play Dream of the Ghost Story, the dance drama Red Sorghum, Confucius Culture Exhibition, Exhibition of Rizhao Farmers’ Paintings, handicraft workshop, China-Australia Forum on Confucianism etc., making up the Focus on Shandong program which will be held in Adelaide in September 2014. The program is an important and cheerful event in friendly exchanges between Shandong Province and South Australia. Showing both the eternal charm of ancient Shandong culture and the creative vitality of contemporary Shandong culture, the Focus on Shandong program will surely be conducive to furthering the understanding between the peoples of Shandong and South Australia, as well as advancing the friendly cooperative relations between the two provinces (states). With rich resources, convenient transportation, advanced culture, friendly people, South Australia deserves the name of Hope State and Festival State. I sincerely hope that Shandong and South Australia will carry out more extensive exchanges and cooperation in sectors such as economy, trade, culture, tourism, etc. We wish the Shandong Focus of OzAsia 2014 every success.

CREATED BY MAYU KANAMORI AND DIRECTED BY MALCOLM BLAYLOCK

PHOTOGRAPHS COME TO LIFE IN A CONVERSATION BETWEEN A PHOTOGRAPHER FROM THE PAST AND ONE FROM THE PRESENT Based on the true story of Japanese-Australian photographer Yasukichi Murakami, what begins as a search for the past, becomes a quest for immortality in Yasukichi Murakami – Through a Distant Lens. The historical muse of this work, Yasukichi Murakami, lived with his wife and their nine children amongst Darwin’s high society in pre-World War II. Settled in Australia for more than 40 years, Murakami was well known and respected as a photographer, entrepreneur and inventor, until the day after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. A multidisciplinary performance work, utilising photographic projections, video, narration, dramatic action, original music and soundscape, creator Mayu Kanamori seeks to unravel the loss of collective memory caused by war between the country of her birth and her migratory homeland.

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

DIRECTOR WANG CHONG AND THÉATRE DU RÊVE EXPÉRIMENTAL

A MOVIE, FILMED LIVE ON STAGE IN A SINGLE TAKE. Inspired by the works of Norwegian dramatic playwright Henrik Ibsen, Ibsen in One Take is an avant garde explosion of theatrical convention in China that defies artistic and technical expectations. Director Wang Chong shoots the play in its hour-long entirety, and the audience watches two scenes unfold at once: crew members shooting live, and a huge screen simultaneously projecting the film. Integrating characters, themes and classic lines from Ibsen’s works, with themes that resonate in modern China today, it tells the bittersweet story of a lonely everyman estranged from his friends and family by an abusive father.

書SHO

In this spectacular performance event, the internationally renowned calligrapher/artist Hiroko Watanabe (b. 1970, Nagoya)(渡部裕子)will fuse words and imagery together with expressive, controlled brush strokes to create a three dimensional calligraphy installation to the rhythms of the Japanese band Above the Clouds (雲の上). Like the performance itself, which melds together the contemporary with time honoured calligraphic traditions of Japan, Above the Clouds combines the improvisation of Jazz infused electric guitar and bass with the strict cadence of Japanese drums. Disciplined movements associated with the martial arts are essential elements to Kabuki and Nō theatre in Japan. Together Hiroko Watanabe and Above the Clouds turn tradition on its head and transform the austere, contemplative acts of the calligrapher into performance art.

SYMPHONY FOR HARP, ORCHESTRA AND 13 MICRO FILMS World-renowned composer and conductor Tan Dun returns to the OzAsia Festival following his Australian Premiere of the Martial Arts Trilogy in 2012 and will be again joined by our own magnificent Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. For centuries, women in the remote area of Tan’s home province of Hunan, China shared messages written in Nu Shu along the folds of a secret fan or embroidered in cloth. It was often the only means for a woman to communicate with her sisters. After five years of research that combined anthropology, musicology, history and philosophy, Tan Dun weaves heartwrenching stories of mothers, daughters, sisters and how they navigate their lives through the music of Nu Shu. Nu Shu: The Secret Songs of Women was created for solo harp. Joining Tan and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra will be one of classical music’s great harp ambassadors, solo harpist with the Philadelphia Orchestra since 1994, Elizabeth Hainen.

DELIVERED BY: PROFESSOR MICHAEL DUTTON

In May 1928, the Communist Party produced the first coin of their socialist revolution in the remote, bandit-ridden region of Jinggangshan, China. Framed by two revolutions: the Mexican revolution against Spanish rule, and the socialist revolution led by the Communist Party of China: this talk maps the journey of the Mexican silver dollar, or ‘Eagle coin’, as it travelled from the mines of America to the remote hills of China. Along the way, the coin became the dominant currency of southern and eastern China, Japan and northern Vietnam. It changed the way the Chinese thought about money, and arguably, the coin helped launch one of the earliest futures markets, and a Communist revolution.

MICHAEL DUTTON is Professor in the Department of Politics, University of London and formerly Professor of Political Cultures at the Griffith Asia Institute, Griffith University. Professor Dutton’s research is characterised by a strong interest in contemporary social and cultural theory wed to a specific ‘archive’ called China.

Confucius, China’s greatest philosopher, educator and thinker, was born some 2,500 years ago in the Shandong city of Qufu. The thinking of Confucius (551-479 BC), or Confucianism, became the cornerstone of traditional Chinese society and endures today. During the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) it was the official state ideology. Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correct social relationships and forms, justice and sincerity. Virtuous actions and personal cultivation were essential. Confucius was practical, not spiritual. His teachings, which emphasized human education and improvement, contrasted with the legalist tradition of many rulers.

The God of Fortune, Woodblock print from the Qing Dynasty

Confucius is known as one of China’s most influential teachers. At the Wisdom of Confucius Exhibition, his important and fascinating story and teachings are displayed through photographs, text, and sculpture. An exciting virtual tour will also explore the Confucian Family, Confucian Temple and the Cemetery of the Confucian Family, which is a World Heritage site located at Qufu, in Shandong Province – the birthplace of Confucius.

The art of kite making in China was born over 2,000 years ago. According to historical records, the first kite was made in the Spring and Autumn Period (around 770-476 BC). The Chinese kite was initially used for military purposes, but they later became a popular pastime of the royal family and nobles. Gradually, flying kites was introduced to civilians and became a beloved handicraft. Weifang in Shandong Province is known as the kite capital of the world. Each spring, people in the city fly kites as a leisure outdoor activity. The Weifang International Kite Festival is an annual kite-flying festival held during April 20 to April 25 every year in Weifang, East China’s Shandong province.

Time-honoured traditional arts and crafts abound throughout Shandong Province, weaving a cultural backdrop of beauty and whimsy.

And when Hong Kong cinema became largely dictated by high-flying, bonecrunching action, it’s only natural that women would join the ranks of action men like Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. This program aims to be a teaser, offering a small sampling of fighting women in Hong Kong films. Three different kinds of action films are included in the lineup. Directed by King Hu, perhaps the first master of martial arts cinema, Raining in the Mountain is a wuxia film, a period piece in which characters brandish weapons in their fights. Blonde Fury, starring the American actress Cynthia Rothrock, is a kung-fu flick, in which fighters engage in hand -to-hand combat (which, of course, always involves the foot too). And lastly, The Heroic Trio, directed by the remarkable Johnnie To before he became internationally renowned, is a comic-book like adventure, featuring three of Hong Kong’s most beloved actresses. Curated by film critic, curator and researcher, Sam Ho.

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HONG KONG CINEMA BUT WERE TOO AFRAID TO ASK Sam Ho, film critic, curator and researcher will join us direct from Hong Kong to provide an overview and share his insights into the wealth of this national cinema.

Friday 5 September, 10.45 – 11.45am Presented as part of MRC’s Seniors on Screen program FREE EVENT – PRESENTED BY SAM HO

ADELAIDE FESTIVAL CENTRE AND SHANDONG PROVINCIAL DEPARTMENT OF CULTURE PRESENT

Rizhao is situated on the coast of south-eastern Shandong Province in China. The name of Rizhao originates from an old saying: “It is the first to get the sunshine”. Rizhao is well-known for its blue sky, jade sea and golden beaches. Listed as China’s first Modern Folk Art Painting City by Ministry of Culture of People’s Republic of China in 1988, Rizhao’ folk art is now treasured and regarded as one of the three major national modern folk art cities. Rizhao Farmers’ Paintings feature local customs of rural and marine areas with a strong flavour of country life, rich content in paintings and elaborate design. At the same time, the paintings show abundant colours, and unique charm. This painting style has attracted world-wide attention and high praise.

ADELAIDE FESTIVAL CENTRE, THE ADELAIDE AND MOUNT LOFTY RANGES NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT BOARD, BIRDLIFE AUSTRALIA AND THE FLYWAY PRINT EXCHANGE PRESENT

CELEBRATE THE SPECTACULAR ARRIVAL OF SHOREBIRDS ON THEIR MIGRATION TO SOUTH AUSTRALIA’S SHORES WITH ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE WORLD. The coastal wetlands north of Adelaide and in Gulf St Vincent are part of the East-Asian Australasian Flyway, an internationally important area for migratory shorebirds. Every summer, over 20,000 of the millions of migratory shorebirds using this global flyway, arrive on our local shores. The Flyway Print Exchange is an exhibition that links artists living along the route travelled by these shorebirds, between the Northern Arctic, Asian and Australian feeding grounds. Twenty artists from nine of the twenty-two flyway countries have created and exchanged prints inspired by the travels of these birds across the globe. These prints reflect the artists’ cultures and personal experiences of these long-distance visitors to their shores. In March 2014, coordinating artist, Kate Gorringe-Smith, posted one print from each edition, unprotected, back along the flyway, echoing the bird’s journey and the weathering of the migrating bird’s plumage. This exhibition will showcase a unique limited edition set of prints, accompanied by images of the weathered prints that survived their own migration through the flyway.

ADELAIDE FESTIVAL CENTRE AND NEXUS MULTICULTURAL ARTS PRESENT

HEMANT SAREEN AND BINDU MEHRA OF INDIA AND DAMIEN SHEN OF INDIGENOUS AUSTRALIAN AND CHINESE HERITAGE. Artist and curator Daniel Connell will curate this exhibition that will feature video works by two established and respected Indian artists, Hemant Sareen and Bindu Mehra, and drawing works by emerging Indigenous and Chinese South Australian artist Damien Shen. Shen will re-interpret the works of Sareen and Mahra by reflecting on his own cultural heritage and experiences with placement, displacement and replacement. Mass migration is occurring within and from India to Australia, a place of cultural erasure, and a permanent destination for people of the subcontinent for millennia. These three artists representing North and South India and indigenous Australia, through text, video and painting will provide a space of contemplation on this.

DANIEL CONNELL HAS DRAWN TOGETHER THE WORK OF THREE ARTISTS WHICH OFFER SUBTLE, EMOTIVE AND LIFE AFFIRMING REFLECTIONS ON TRANSLOCATION AND BELONGING.

ADELAIDE FESTIVAL CENTRE AND CONTEMPORARY ART CENTRE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA (CACSA) PRESENT

Internationally recognised Chinese artist Cao Fei presents Adelaide audiences with Theatrical Mirror: Living in-between the Real and the Unreal, featuring eight videoworks spanning the years 2004 to 2013. These video and new media works reflect the fluidity of a world in which cultures have mixed and diverged in rapid evolution, exploring perception and reality in places as diverse as a Chinese factory and the virtual world of “Second Life”. Depictions of hyper-capitalistic Pearl River Delta development abound in imagery that echoes traditional Chinese landscape painting and in the design of her own virtual utopia, RMB City. Applying strategies of sampling, roleplay and documentary film making Cao Fei reveals the discrepancy between reality and dream, and the discontent and disillusionment of China’s younger generation.

AN EXHIBITION OF CONTEMPORARY AND CUTTING EDGE NEW MEDIA FROM CHINESE ARTIST CAO FEI.
