  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: One evening in February, on the balcony of the University of Hawai'i's (UH's) magnificent Kennedy Theatre, I found myself talking to Reiko Brandon, widow of ATJ's founding editor Jim Brandon. I was there to watch the ninth jingju (Beijing opera) production directed by Elizabeth Wichmann-Walczak, Jim's co-editor. As I was telling Reiko of ATJ's change of editor, I was reminded of the outsize contribution UH's theatre program has made to Asian theatre studies, particularly to ATJ over the past three and half decades. Indeed, all my predecessors came from the program as professors or students, starting from Jim and Elizabeth (1984–1991), through Sam Leiter (1992–2004), to Kathy Foley (2005–2018). Together, they have ... Read More

  • Three Heroes: Haseyama Toshihiko's Student Play in Wartime Japan
    • Abstract: In early 1932, newspapers around the world reported that three Japanese combat engineers martyred themselves during the five-weeklong Shanghai War between the Empire of Japan and the Republic of China. On 22 February, the three soldiers allegedly ran a Bangalore torpedo into a thicket of barbed wire entanglements with foreknowledge of their own impending deaths. The explosion that followed blew them to bits and ripped a thirty-foot-wide hole out of the Chinese defenses. This allowed two Japanese infantry platoons to capture a vital enemy stronghold north of Shanghai's International Settlement at the village of Miaohang. Posthumously nicknamed Nikudan san'yūshi (flesh bomb three heroes) and Bakudan san'yūshi ... Read More

  • The Dr. Walter Angst and Sir Henry Angest Collection of Indonesian
           Puppets: The Structure of the Conjuncture
    • Abstract: Between 1973 and 2011, the Swiss collector Walter Angst (1942–2014) assembled the world's largest collection of Indonesian puppetry (wayang), comprising approximately 20,000 puppets from western Indonesia—including shadow puppets (wayang kulit), rod puppets (wayang golek), and flat wooden puppets (wayang klithik, also known as wayang krucil)—along with several thousand related objects ranging from wayang silverware to masks, lamps used in shadow puppetry, traditional weapons such as keris, paintings, and gamelan musical instruments (Fig. 1). Angst was a zoologist by profession. Wayang for Angst was essentially a hobby, supported financially by his brother, the London-based banker Sir Henry Angest. Angst's ... Read More

  • Gendered Nostalgia: Tajik Traditional Dance and the Logic of Nationalism
    • Abstract: ]]]]thought]barefoot]]]]Only six complete poems of Sappho, the sixth century bce Greek poet, survive today. The remainder of her works survive only in fragments and excerpts quoted by others. Anne Carson translates these fragments, using brackets and leaving blank space for all of the missing words, lines, and stanzas. She describes the creative work of rendering what is missing: "Brackets are an aesthetic gesture toward the papyrological event rather than an accurate record of it . . . —brackets imply a free space of imaginal adventure" (2002: xi). By attending as much to what has been lost as to what remains, Carson's translation becomes a reproduction of our fragmented collective historical memory. In Carson's ... Read More

  • The Process of Institutionalization of Chinese Dance in Singapore,
           1980s–1990s
    • Abstract: In 1989, Lee Yock Suan, Singapore Minister for Labor, asked: "How do we renew interest in Chinese dance'" The reason for posing this question was the bleak study result showing declining youth participation in Chinese dance in Singapore since 1985, possibly due to the influence of Western dance (Straits Times 1989b: 19). The research study was Lee's brainchild. Lee admonished, "Today, more and more of our young take to ballet, jazz, and other western dances rather than Chinese, Malay, or Indian dances" (p. 19). Lee reeled off the statistics with gloom: Even though 4,500 people enrolled in ethnic dance courses in the community centers (or public recreational facilities) in 1988, only 59% participated in Chinese ...

    • Abstract: This study explores a debate in the 1960s about the Method of Action Analysis (MAA) in North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea [DPRK]) as theatre artists adopted the Stanislavski system (hereafter, the System) directly from the Soviet Union, which had occupied the country at the end of WWII. The introduction of MAA ignited a conflict with the older generation of directors and actors who were influenced by Japanese models. This study examines this debate concerning realistic acting methods in North Korea, which reached a peak in 1963–1964.North Korean theatre history can be divided into two periods: socialist realism theatre influenced by Stalinist socialist realism (1948–1971) and "Revolution Theatre" ...

  • Protesting Female Feticide and Hope for a New Earth: A Study of A.
           Mangai's Pacha mannu (The New Born)
    • Abstract: Indian women's engagement with theatre to protest gender discrimination and gender violence began with the formation of feminist groups in the 1970s. Since then women theatre practitioners have been embracing theatre to engage effectively with the masses for the cause of women. These theatre groups act as a link between women's consciousness and women's articulation. They give voice to women's issues, ranging from female infanticide, through gender inequality and dowry, to multiple forms of violence against women. Among the several social problems in the country, the problem of female feticide is a pan-Indian occurrence. Governmental apathy and laissez-faire attitude that pass this criminal offence as a matter of ... Read More

  • A Queer Fantasy World of The New Member: The Phenomenon of the First Boys'
           Love Musical in Taiwan
    • Abstract: The "Boys' Love" genre (BL), which revolves around love affairs between beautiful young men, is consumed mainly by gils and young women, many of whom become fanatical readers, creators, and collectors. Originating from Japanese shōjo manga (literally, "comics for teenage girls") depicting romantic love between a good-looking boy and a pretty girl, the genre has grown to include such media as novels, animated films, and video games.1 The core of the BL audience is devoted fans known as fujoshi ("rotten girls" in Japanese; 腐女 funü in Mandarin).2 This ironic self-teasing term implies that these fans are addicted to BL beyond remedy. Beginning in the 1990s, BL manga spread from Japan to Taiwan, and as time passed a ... Read More

  • Jewelry Purse: The Soul of the Cheng School in Jingju
    • Abstract: Roles in jingju (Beijing opera) fall into four major types: sheng (male role), dan (female role), jin (painted-face role), and chou (comic role). Each role type has its own performing characteristics and forms diverse schools with special styles. The most influential dan schools are Mei, Cheng, Shang, and Xun, named for creators Mei Langfang (梅兰芳 1894–1961), Cheng Yanqiu (程砚秋 1904–1958) (Fig. 1), Shang Xiaoyun ((尚小云 1900–1976), and Xun Huisheng (荀慧生 1900–1968), respectively. Each has their representative repertoire and followers. Different roles of the four types have further subdivisions. Dan has: qingyi (blue gown female), huadan (flower female), daomadan (sword and horse female), and laodan (older female). The ... Read More

  • To Complete the Circuit: Reinterpreting Brecht's The Caucasian Chalk
           Circle as Chuanju (Sichuan Opera) The Chalk Circle
    • Abstract: Chuanju (Sichuan opera) is a form of Chinese xiqu (Chinese opera) that incorporates song, speech, and acrobatics. It is popular in Sichuan in southwestern China and some areas in Yunnan, Guizhou, and Hubei provinces. The genre's first adaptation of a play by Bertolt Brecht occurred with The Good Person of Szechwan in 1987. In 1992, the Sichuan playwright Hu Chengde adapted The Caucasian Chalk Circle as chuanju Huilan ji (The Chalk Circle).1 In 2011, playwright Yang Xiao reinterpreted chuanju The Chalk Circle together with director Ouyang Ming and Artistic Director of Chongqing Chuanju Company Shen Tiemei. They experimented with interfusing traditional chuanju with innovative new techniques in order to address ... Read More

There is music blaring, a bar that sells drinks and "cup of candy," and videos of JTM's young Korean pop stars playing on two large screens. Jerry (James Seol), a Korean-American hired to help the fictional Korean recording label, JTM, translate its success at home to the United States, greets us as a focus group brought in to help answer some pressing questions: Why has KPOP been a popular export all around the world, but not in the United States' How can he help JTM's artists appeal to US audiences' We meet the label's stars, who each performs their KPOP hit numbers in turn on one of the surrounding stages: solo star MwE (Ashley Park), a girl ...

  • Rasa dance festival by Akshara (review)
    • Abstract: Four women lie in lines face up on the stage floor. They are still except for their hands, which they hold quivering above their chests, palms flat, and fingers outstretched. The dancers' bodies represent burning corpses, their hands like flames and smoke rising into the air. At the center, a dancer performs the role of Kali, goddess of death, who resides in the cremation grounds. She squats low with feet and knees spread wide, her hands claw-like scooping upward, her face turned up, and eyes bulging. She stamps out rhythms while spiraling her hands forward, cupping an imaginary skull in each palm. The other dancers rise to their knees, miming the gestures for jackals and vultures. They dance in a circle around ... Read More

  • M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang (review)
    • Abstract: The 2017 Broadway revival of M. Butterfly is not just a restaging of the play, but the product of a close collaboration between playwright David Henry Hwang and director Julie Taymor to rethink this tale in relation to social, economic, and cultural shifts that have taken place since the show's first award-winning Broadway production in 1988. Importantly, it includes notable revisions to the script. On the one hand, the revisions are subtle. Although I have frequently taught the play, after seeing the new production, with the show fresh in my mind, I went to the New York Performing Arts Library and had to watch the archive tape of the original with careful attention to catch spots where revisions had taken place ...

  • Mapping South Asia through Contemporary Theatre: Essays on the Theatres of
           India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka ed. by Ashis Sengupta
           (review)
    • Abstract: The political complexities of South Asia has considerable impacts on performance practice. Performers responded to the varied social, cultural, and political shifts in the region through their artwork. Mapping South Asia through Contemporary Theatre is possibly the first volume of its kind that critically interrogates varied performance practices from several countries of this region. The collection, edited by Ashis Sengupta, puts performance at the heart of the South Asian critical discourse and is a valuable addition to the study of the region.Sengupta's imagining of South Asia leaves out Afghanistan, Bhutan, and Maldives, in his own words, for "space constraints" (p. 1). The editor contextualizes the collection ... Read More

  • Glove Puppet Theatre in Southeast Asia and Taiwan ed. by Kaori Fushiki and
           Robin Ruizendaal (review)
    • Abstract: An oft-repeated tale of the origin of potehi (known as budaixi in Mandarin), China's best known form of glove puppet theatre, purports that it was invented by a "wannabe" literati who repeatedly flunked his civil service examinations. He attempted and failed at string puppetry but discovered that by handling figures directly in his palms he could animate the puppets and move them in a convincing, life-like fashion (Cohen 1981: 33–34). Potehi, since its beginnings in Fujian Province in the eighteenth century, has been an important Hokkien-language medium for literary classics such as Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Journey to the West. Like China's shadow puppet theatres, Potehi functioned as a poor man's opera ... Read More

  • Chinatown Opera Theater in North America by Nancy Yunhwa Rao (review)
    • Abstract: In an engaging manifesto, Nancy Yunhwa Rao states that to chronicle the history of Chinatown theatres "is to challenge the invisibility of opera performers, to hear and watch them through the words left by its fans, to reimagine it in its full richness and complexity, to relocate Chinese opera theater in both local communities and transnational circuits, to reconstruct its image, and to build a bridge between the past and the present" (p. 320). Chinatown Opera Theater in North America is a thorough success in fulfilling these tasks. Rao examines Cantonese opera in North American Chinatowns during the 1920s at the intersection of theatre history, North American music history, diasporatic cultural studies, gender ... Read More

  • Performing Korea by Patrice Pavis (review)
    • Abstract: Patrice Pavis' current book, entitled Performing Korea, is a record of contemporary Korean performances, examining what the author "perceived" as Korean performance from the viewpoint of a foreign spectator. This experience resulted from "seeing Korean dance and theatre almost every day" (p. 249) during the author's stay in South Korea between 2011 and 2012. This book's greatest asset is how it provides insight into the contemporary landscape of Korean theatre. In this book, Pavis explores and analyzes "everyday practices drawn from his own experience of wandering" Korea (p. xi), of which his viewpoint is also partly inspired by Roland Barthes' Empire of Signs. With a diversity of artistic practices from Korean ... Read More

  • Comic Performance in Pakistan: The Bhānd by Claire Pamment (review)
    • Abstract: "Who's on first'"Claire Pamment characterizes bhānd as a type of performance that involves witty, verbal repartee between two male performers, an authority figure and a clownish foil who comments on current events "in metaphors that combine social, religious and/or cultural references" and in "play with paradoxes in their environment" (pp. 9, 20). I had to wonder why the author never cites either Abbott or Costello. Pamment's further description of bhānd as operating historically as "comic interlude" for popular theatre seems to demand some explicit acknowledgment of the affinity between Pakistan's bhānd and the comic duos of burlesque and vaudeville in the United States (p. 15).But Pamment doesn't stumble into ...
