Dates to come

Cycles of Light is a cabaret night that brings together the renewed energy and renewed light, connecting artists through generations, ages, genders, sexualities, and points of belonging across Asia. This cabaret is a rendez-vous with the past, the present, and the future; it is an ending and a new beginning.

The universe expresses itself in cycles: the movements of the planets, the rotation of the earth, the coming and going of seasons, the cycles of darkness and light, life and death, endings and beginnings. For the 25th anniversary of Festival Accès Asie, we come full-circle: we are completing a cycle by inviting artists from the very first cabaret of the Festival to share a stage with artists from the last cabaret of the Festival.

Curated and hosted by the inter-generational duo, Himmat Singh Shinhat and Kama La Mackerel, Cycles of Light will feature The Balcony, Laila Gulabi, Shin Ling, Janet Lumb, and Atif Siddiqi.
