What is the Bitten Peach?
The Bitten Peach takes its name from an ancient tale from China’s Zhou dynasty (1000-500 BC) and means “homosexual”.

A platform to showcase your talent as a Pan-Asian performer does not come by often! People of colour are disproportionately underrepresented on the performance scene, and this is even more true for Asians.

We are tired of being stereotyped and tokenised, so we’ve created our own platform to tell our own stories and show off our wide array of talents.
