Asiatopiais the longest-running Southeast Asian festival of performance art. Over 400 international artists have performed since 1998. Asiatopia was supported by Bangkok Metropolitan Administration from 1998-2002 and the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre since 2010. 2011, Asiatopia has expanded into Chiangmai and Chiangrai, Korat, and Nan, providing workshops with young students and artists.
The name Asiatopia combines words with multiple connotations. Asia, and the root of ‘u/topia’, combining the relationship between site, practice, history, social activism, idealism, the sensible body, and the impossible.
