Asian Arts Engagement Crew - Sam Wang

Asian Arts Engagement Crew is a satirical comedy about a group of corporate-hippie Asians trying to change the world by engaging more Asians in the arts…one powerpoint presentation at a time. Sam Wang's new script in development takes its lead from TV's Community, forcing a rag tag group of Asian misfits to work together in a university funded “Let’s engage Asians in the Arts” committee. Directed by Alice Canton and presented by a cast of nine Asian New Zealand performers, this is a brand new laugh-out-loud comedy you wont want to miss. Join us for a discussion after the show!

We are proud to be supported by Unitec, The Basement, Q Theatre, Creative Communities Scheme (CNZ) and The Asia NZ Foundation.
