Arts Minister Senator George Brandis has announced more than $600,000 to support seven Australian major performing arts companies to undertake international engagement with China, South Korea and New Zealand from 2015 to 2017.
The Australian Chamber Orchestra, Black Swan State Theatre Company, Sydney Dance Company, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and West Australian Symphony Orchestra will form partnerships and undertake cross-cultural collaboration and exchange, to bring some of Australia's best performing arts to audiences in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Australian Government recognises the importance of increasing Australia's artistic presence on the world stage. As a nation we boast some of the greatest artists, arts companies and arts administrators in the world. The projects supported through this funding will enhance Australia's reputation by promoting excellent Australian performing arts productions and collaborations.
