  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: I invite readers to look at the names and affiliations of the authors of this issue and note that our contributors (many of whom are Association for Asian Performance members) are all over the globe. We are Japanese (Yoshiko Fukushima) or Chinese (Dongshin Chang) who teach in the United States, Indians who teach in the United Kingdom (Arya Madhavan), Italians who have studied in China (Antonio Leggieri), Chinese teaching in Australia (Xiaohuan Zhao), Taiwanese (Yi-Hsin Hsu and Iris Tuan), Filipino (Sir Anril Tiatco), Indonesian (Een Her diani), Greek (Avra Sidiropoulu), or Chinese (Qinghuan Huang) scholars teaching in home countries. We are Americans with teaching experience in Japan (Ruth Forsythe and Jonah Salz) ... Read More

  • Borrowing the Fan: An Example of Actable Plays (Zhezixi) for the Kunqu
           Stage
    • Abstract: Kunqu (or kunju),1 a highly refined form of traditional Chinese theatre (xiqu) from the Suzhou region and with its history dating back to the mid-sixteenth century, has often been associated with the elite and wealthy (Swatek 2002a: xviii), appealing to an esoteric circle of enthusiasts. This claim is partially true, as can be testified by the well-known play Peony Pavilion (1598),2 a play full of exquisite poetry and complex wordplay, written by Tang Xianzu (1550–1616/7), an exiled, disillusioned scholar-official. However, the claim overlooks the historical fact that kunqu as a theatre form attained nationwide popularity for two centuries, leaving its legacy in later forms such as Beijing opera (jingju) and ...

  • A Monk and a Nun Commit a Sin Together: Feng Weimin's Play and Its Three
           Transformations
    • Abstract: Ming dynasty writer Feng Weimin (1511–1578)1 has so far been regarded by the academic world mainly as a poet. His collection of qu songs has been studied and appreciated both in China and overseas, appearing in many histories and anthologies of Chinese literature, and causing him to be called the great poet Su Dongpo's (1037–1101) heir.2 What does not frequently appear (and to my knowledge heretofore have not fully been translated into English) are his zaju plays, made up of dialogue and arias sung to well-known melodies. Only two have survived, namely Bu fu lao (Old Graduate; literally, "Not Submitting to Old Age"), a partly autobiographical play about a scholar who passes the official exams only at eighty-two ...

  • Identity Politics in Okinawan Kumiodori: Mekarushi and Hana no Maboroshi
           (Vision of Flowers)
    • Abstract: From its inception, kumiodori (ensemble dance), the indigenous dramatic form originating in Okinawa1 in 1719 and continuing today, has been rooted in identity politics. A comparison of one of the earliest kumiodori plays, Mekarushi (Master Mekarushi), written in the early eighteenth century by the founder of the genre, Tamagusuku Chōkun (1684–1734), with a contemporary kumiodori play (published in 2007), Hana no Maboroshi (Vision of Flowers; future references to the play will use this translated title), written by Ōshiro Tatsuhiro (b. 1925), graphically demonstrates Okinawans' long struggle to carve out an identity that is distinctive within the context of constant efforts from neighbors and outside forces to ...

  • Drenched in Victory, Facing Drought: Staging Transitions in Myanmar's
           Performing Arts
    • Abstract: Around 6 p.m., the bacchanalian festivities of Thingyan (Water Festival) began to subside, and shortly after, the large stage in front of the Yangon city hall lit up for the evening's performance of song and dance. Several of the city's arteries had been blocked off to become sites of drenched dancers and singers gyrating on pandals—temporary stages. Youth on the backs of pickup trucks slowly cruised back and forth, dousing rivals and being doused in turn as electro and hip-hop music throbbed in rival beats.

    • Abstract: I first came across this excerpt from Duarte Barbosa's 1516 account of his travels while doing a study on the ritual of theyyam in north Kerala (Southwest India) in 2015.There is another sect even lower of these people, called paneu,1 who are great practisers of witchcraft, and they do not gain their living by anything else than charms. They visibly speak with devils who put themselves within them, and make them do awful things.[…] They set up a tent of coloured cloth in which they all place themselves. And there they paint their bodies with colours, and make crowns of painted paper and cloth, and other inventions of many sorts, with plenty of flowers and herbs, and great bonfires, and lighted lamps, and ...

  • The Hall of Superabundant Blessings: Toward an Architecture of Chinese
           Ancestral-Temple Theatre
    • Abstract: Those who have seen the 2000 Oscar-winning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon have likely been impressed with the stunning beauty of the bamboo forest surrounding an ancient village where lives the main character, Master Li Mu Bai, an accomplished swordsman and warrior of the Wudang 武當 sect. This martial arts film is set in eighteenth-century China during the Qing 清 dynasty (1644–1911) with fight scenes in, on, and around an ancestral hall (citang 祠堂) shot in Huizhou 徽州.Where is Huizhou and what is an ancestral hall' These questions are core to this study on the culture and architecture of ancestral-hall theatres in Huizhou. To understand we examine Huizhou briefly in its geographical and sociohistorical settings ... Read More

  • Zhang Huoding: A Popular Jingju Star with Young Chinese
    • Abstract: Zhang Huoding (张火丁), considered a national first-class jingju (Beijing opera or Peking opera) actress of dan (旦, a female role), was born in 1971 in Baicheng City, Jilin Province, in the north of China.

  • Lee Hyon-u's Hamlet Q1 and Pedagogical Performance on the Korean Stage:
           Textual Identity in Intercultural Theatre
    • Abstract: The first Korean incarnation of the "bad" First Quarto of Hamlet (hereafter Q1), Lee Hyon-u's Hamlet Q1 (2009) ushered in the advent of textual scholarship in intercultural Shakespearean performances in South Korea. Produced jointly by scholar-led Dionysus Drama Research Network and Flow Theatre Company,1 Hamlet Q1 asserted a strong textual identity through the director's refusal to use eclectic scripts produced by merging the authoritative Second Quarto (hereafter Q2) and First Folio (hereafter F1) versions. The production instead featured a verbatim translation of the Q1 text, a version known only to a small coterie of academic specialists in Korea. While laying the claim to presenting Shakespeare's neglected Q1 ... Read More

  • Dynamics of Jaipongan on West Java from 1980 to 2010
    • Abstract: Jaipongan is a genre of Sundanese dance born in the 1970s, spearheaded by Gugum Gumbira (Fig. 1), a Bandung artist-bureaucrat who was inspired by the democratic aesthetic of Sundanese courtesan folk dance ketuk tilu. Early publications on the genre in English include Manuel and Baier (1986) and Hellwig, who by 1993 argued that it had already replaced the folk form from which it derived and that "the dubious moral overtones of women dancing with men in ketuk tilu and jaipongan have disappeared" (Hellwig 1993: 51). However, in 1995 Yampolsky was noting that this dance, derived from courtesan culture,was "so popular that a reclaimed, revulgarized version then appeared among the urban poor" (1995: 719)."Pencug" ...

  • Time's Journey Through a Room dir. by Okada Toshiki/chelfitsch (review)
    • Abstract: Time's Journey through a Room, by Okada Toshiki, premiered at the Kyoto Fest in March 2016 and then toured Europe. Commemorating the fifth anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe of March 2011, Time's Journey describes the social, ethical, and emotional challenges that the Japanese have faced in the aftermath of this disaster and the country's general economic and cultural decline since the 1980s boom. The production probes into issues of failure, cynicism, and national grief. This work was a coproduction of Kyoto Experiment/ROHM Theatre Kyoto, where I viewed it during its opening, prior to its presentation in various European cities. Being a non-Japanese speaker, I was able to follow the story comfortably ... Read More

  • Xiangsi Nostalgia dir. by Lee Hsiao-Ping (review)
    • Abstract: Nine years after the first Hakka musical, a second, Xiangsi (Lovesickness) Nostalgia (香絲 相思) (2016) was staged in Taiwan. My Daughter's Wedding (2007), an adaption of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew, was the first and, like this new one, was produced by Taipei National University of the Arts and sponsored by Hakka Affairs Council. Xiangsi Nostalgia is different in that the script by playwright Lin Chien-Hua is taken from a Taiwanese short story, "Tung Flowers," written by local Hakka author Kung Wan-Tsao (龔萬灶). Issues of ethnicity, love, and class are examined through lovers' misunderstandings set largely in the much simpler 1930s period. The woodcutter Master Hwang's first apprentice, Lee Mu-shen (李木生) (played ... Read More

Therefore, this book, a revised second edition of Ashton-Sikora's 1993 book Krishnattam, is certainly welcomed.The book has ten chapters, including Martha Ashton-Sikora's highly detailed introduction discussing her relationship with krishnattam, her experience of watching performances between 1970 and 1985, and her encounters with the actors, spectators, teachers, and scholars. This chapter, written in highly accessible language, not ... Read More

His most recent book will be of interest to those researching Indonesian dance, music, theatre, popular entertainments, and cultural history. It surveys how the performing arts reflected and modeled the altering social, political, and economic circumstances of colonial Indonesia. The information comes from detailed readings of colonial-era newspapers for information on performance events and artists' lives, which Cohen then filters through contemporary research on Indonesia's history and elucidates via contemporary cultural theory. His detail work ... Read More

  • Women in The Shadows: Gender, Puppets, and The Power of Tradition in Bali
           by Jennifer Goodlander (review)
    • Abstract: In her new book, Women in the Shadows, Jennifer Goodlander continues her scholarship on women dalang (puppeteers) and wayang kulit (shadow theatre) in Bali, Indonesia. Goodlander examines the role and social positions of women dalang within a traditionally male role in Balinese society. The author does this by focusing on the concept of power within Balinese society and how this ties into gender hierarchy, tradition, and wayang kulit.In six chapters Goodlander uses an efficient and thought-provoking division of her book by separating it into two main parts that represent the primary division of Balinese cosmology: the visible realm (sekala) and the invisible realm (niskala). In the first section, the sekala ... Read More

There is no doubt that cuteness is a double-edged tool for Japanese women. Can we really call the girls of the theatre group YUBIWA Hotel in the cover photo of the book cute and innocent' Am I the only one who feels the strong will behind their Mona Lisa "uncatchable smile"'Nobuko Anan, calling herself "a girl researcher," examines what she calls "girls' aesthetics" in Japanese contemporary performance and visual arts.

The potent stillness of the medieval nō mask and the dynamism of the kabuki hero's painted face and arms-akimbo stance have become these iconic symbols respectively for "exotic and erotic Japan." Public and private museums worldwide maintain, catalogue, and digitize these gems, gathered from family treasure houses.

  • Edo Kabuki in Transition: From the Worlds of the Samurai to the Vengeful
           Female Ghost by Satoko Shimazaki (review)
    • Abstract: Satoko Shimazaki's Edo Kabuki in Transition is a major work of scholarship on the culture of Japan's early modern period (1603–1868). Reflecting—and contributing to—the continuing vitality of kabuki as an area of academic inquiry, Shimazaki's analysis carefully builds on prior studies and draws from a wide range of primary source material. A focus on Tōkaidō Yotsuya kaidan by Edo kabuki playwright Tsuruya Nanboku IV (1755–1829) unifies the study. (The play's title is usually shortened, as it is in the book, to Yotsuya kaidan, (Ghost Stories at Yotsuya). Making the case that kabuki during the early modern period should be seen as an ongoing cultural process in which plays were mutable events rather than fixed texts ... Read More

  • Places for Happiness: Community, Self, and Performance in the Philippines
           by William Peterson (review)
    • Abstract: Tourism is now considered a major economic "engine of growth" in the archipelagic nation of the Philippines, and as Bernado M. Villegas (2016) reports tourism is now second to business processing outsourcing in terms of financial contribution to the nation's GDP. According to the Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines, this phenomenon may be attributed to the country's most successful tourism campaign to date: "It's More Fun in the Philippines." Launched in 2012, the campaign is believed to have attracted up to almost 5 million foreign visitors as compared to foreign tourists prior to the release of the campaign (Department of Tourism 2015). In this campaign, the Philippine government has crafted a ... Read More
