Formerly known as Chinese Arts Now, the newly named Kakilang theatre company return from the 21st February with their multi-art form festival. Kakilang – meaning ‘one of us’, the perfect term to encapsulate the work staged by artists of East and South East Asian heritage. Set to take over various London based venues – the Barbican, Two Temple Place, Yard Theatre, Rich Mix and Shoreditch Theatre, as well as outside of London at York Theatre Royal, Kakilang will continue on with its mission to showcase a host of exciting new work. Ahead of this year’s event, Associate Artistic Director Si Rawlinson tells us more about curating this year’s line up, receiving support from the Bagri Foundation and what audiences can expect!
Kakilang will be hosting Kakilang Festival 2023 from the 21st February to 22nd April at the Barbican, York Theatre Royal, Two Temple Place, The Yard, Rich Mix and Shoreditch Theatre. How are you feeling ahead of the festival?
