Our Work

At Asian Arts Global we work to bring outstanding work from Asia to the West and vice versa. Building on our enthusiasm for internationalism and the arts we seek connections with the most exciting artists and arts organisations East and West and create opportunities for touring and exchange. We lead on projects from very early stages right until completion, planning and delivering every aspect of the work and supporting our clients all the way.

Our core activity is focused in China and Scotland bringing together our expertise and networks. Our core team combines a deep understanding of contemporary Chinese and European audiences as well as a great track record working with Chinese and European partners and funders.

We have considerable experience bringing work from Asia to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe having succesfully worked with top professional organisations such as the National Theatre of China as well as renowned youth companies such as the Shanghai Young Philharmonic Orchestra. We have excellent relationships with local authorities, organisations and the various Asian communities in Edinburgh.

We also specialise in creating our own performing arts festivals having designed, programmed and delivered events in a number of Asian cities.

Asian Arts Global also acts as scout/curator and consultant for venues and festivals in East- and South-East Asia specialising in European theatre, dance, street performance and variety.

Our team have succesfully delivered a range of arts projects including:

  • a glamorous fashion show – the first of its kind in Scotland – featuring the traditional stylish, figure-hugging Chinese cheongsam dress curated by the Shanghai Promotion Centre of Fashion at the National Museum of Scotland
  • sold out Edinburgh Fringe runs of  National Theatre of China productions ‘A Life on The Silk Road‘ and ‘Luocha Land
  • 10 years of International Comedy Festivals over a range of cities in China
  • Edinburgh Fringe Variety Festivals – for example as part of Jing’an Modern Drama Valley
