The Bitten Peach is a collective of performers and artists of Asian descent focused on creating spaces to tell our own stories. The Bitten Peach is a space where we celebrate Asians! We foster Asian talent and work to empower the Pan-Asian community.
For too long, Asian stories have been told from a white perspective. We are flipping the script by creating our own platforms to champion Asian voices. Our events host the top Pan-Asian performers from the queer and cabaret scene, inwhich we are often marginalised, tokenised and fetishised. We make spaces where Asian performers have the autonomy to showcase their talents how they see fit, beyond tired and stale stereotypes.
We seek to increase participation from the Asian community in live performance, both as performers and as audience.
Through our ‘Peach Fuzz’ programme, we provide mentors to newer performers to help them hone their skills, and offer them performance opportunities. While our “Bitten on Budget” ticket scheme provides discounted tickets for Asians and other People of Colour, who cannot afford a full price ticket.
We entertain and educate! We use our collective voice to speak out on racial issues that affect the Asian community, and people of colour at large.
