  • From the Editor
    • Abstract: This issue is heartening for the international spread of subjects and the number of Asian scholars who are represented and analyzing their own traditions with either local tools or reaching across Asian borders to use ideas from other theatres in the region.
      Authors are not just assembling the usual icons of twentieth-century Euro-American theory. This indicates that perhaps our field is getting beyond the confines of contemporary Western academic theory. For example, Kyounghye Kwon points out the United Kingdom did not understand Oh Tae-suk’s Tempest, seeing it as “light” since viewers there did not understand the serious use of comedy in Korean performance traditions and theorizations. In a ... Read More

  • Wayang Kulit Kelantan: A Study of Characterization and Puppets
    • Abstract: Wayang kulit kelantan,1 previously known as wayang kulit siam, is the most important of three shadow play styles still active in Malaysia, the others being the Javanese wayang kulit purwa and wayang kulit kampung Asun maintained by a single puppeteer in the eponymous village in the northern state of Kedah and developed from the now extinct wayang kulit gedek—the Malaysian version of Thai nang talung. The origins of wayang kulit kelantan have been variously debated (see Yousof 2004: 91–118). In form and essence, it has been shaped by indigenous beliefs as well as cultural elements from India, southern Thailand, and Java, as evident in the puppet designs, dramatic repertoire, rituals, as well as overall ...

  • Dramatizing Romance of the Three Kingdoms in Japanese Puppet Theatre:
           Zhuge Liang’s Military Talk on the Three Kingdoms
    • Abstract: Kokusen’ya kassen (The Battles of Coxinga, 1715) is arguably the best-known bunraku play with a historical setting. Written by the famous Japanese playwright Chikamatsu Monzaemon (1653–1724), this play depicts how the protagonist, who is based on the historical figure Zheng Chenggong (1624–1662), contributes to the restoration of the Ming dynasty in China. It achieved huge success and saved the Takemoto troupe from the threat of collapse. This paper focuses on a lesser-known and underdiscussed bunraku play, Shokatsu Kōmei kanae gundan (諸葛孔明鼎軍談, Zhuge Liang’s Military Talk on the Three Kingdoms, 1724, hereafter Military Talk), which similarly has a Chinese theme and was created by Takeda Izumo (d. 1747) as ...

  • The Development of Indonesian Modern Theatre: Four Periods of Creativity
           from 1970 to 2015
    • Abstract: As a student, then performer, critic, viewer, and writer in Indonesian modern drama for much of the period from the 1980s to the present, I offer an overview of four periods of creative work in Indonesian modern theatre from an insider’s perspective, realizing that most descriptions available in English have come from Western scholars, including, but not limited to, Rafferty (1989), Gillitt (2001), Winet (2010), Bodden (2010a), Hatley (2008, 2009), and Varney, Eckersall, and Hatley (2013). Lane (see Rendra 1979 and 2014: 387–449), Aveling (Arifin C. Noer 1974), Gillitt (2010), and Bodden (2010b) have also done significant work in editing or translating scripts to give access to director-author’s works. But ... Read More

  • The Hilarity of Unhappiness in Oh Tae-suk’s Tempest: Cross-Cultural
           Access and Precolonial/Indigenous Aesthetics
    • Abstract: Since 1933, when the trial scene from The Merchant of Venice was staged by Geugyesul yeonguhoe (Theatre Arts Research Association), a group formed by Koreans who had studied in imperial Japan (Shin 1999: 43; Dobson 2011), Shakespeare productions by Korean directors have come a long way. Under the Japanese colonial rule of Korea (1910–1945), Shakespeare was first introduced as a great English thinker and literary figure (Kim Jong-hwan 1995). After limited theatre activities under Japanese colonialism and during the Korean War (1950–1953), more productions of Shakespeare by Korean theatre companies appeared.1 The complete collection of Shakespeare’s plays was translated into Korean for the first time in 1964. ...

  • Gender and Ethnicity in Indian Classical Dance in Malaysia
    • Abstract: With a huge sun image adorning the background, Ramli Ibrahim (b. 1953), an avid odissi dance practitioner of Malay Muslim heritage, takes the role of the Indian solar deity, Surya, on stage. Another male dancer, a Malaysian Indian, Parveen Nair, who sits half in outward knee bent position about two feet in front of Ramli1 facing the audience, is the charioteer. Seven female dancers, several feet in front of Parveen, whose ethnic identities include Malaysian Indians and Malaysian Chinese, form an arch, representing the horses that Surya (Ramli) rides in this spectacular chariot-riding scene. Dancers move forward with steps performed to the rhythmic syllables “dhit thai, dhit thai” and subsequently move ... Read More

  • Ma Xianglan and Wang Zhideng Onstage and Offstage: Rethinking the Romance
           of a Courtesan Theatre in Ming-Qing China
    • Abstract: Known as one of the noteworthy late Ming courtesans, Ma Xianglan (1548–1604) is unique as the only female troupe owner in the flourishing late Ming theatre. She not only presented onstage and tutored her performers but also took them on performance tours. She also authorized at least one play, Sansheng ji (Story of Three Lives). However, in contemporary accounts, Ma Xianglan was first and foremost portrayed as a faithful Qinhuai mingji (celebrity courtesan of Nanjing), a talented courtesan painter and poet who lavished money generously on her literati partners.1 Particularly, her over-thirty-year relationship with literatus Wang Zhideng (1535–1612), which prevailed in extant works, earned the pair a place in ...

  • Murder in the Royal Palace: A Four-Act Play by Younghill Kang
    • Abstract: It is now a well-known fact that in the 1930s Younghill Kang (in Korean: Kang Yong-heul) first paved the way for Korean American literature—or, for that matter, Asian American literature—by publishing his two major works.1 His first novel, The Grass Roof (1931), explores a young man’s (Chung-pa Han) life in Korea under Japanese colonization to the point of his departure for the United States. Essentially a sequel to this novel, East Goes West (1937) begins exactly where the first novel stops. Being a bewildered exile, the protagonist (now Chungpa without a hyphen) tries hard to find himself in the middle of conflicting cultures—the preindustrial culture of his home country and the material culture of the West. As ... Read More

  • Rachel Cooper
    • Abstract: An often overlooked and chronically undervalued cohort in the field of Asian theatre are the presenters who, both within and without the academy, regularly enact miracles to bring Asian performers to our shores. From curating programs, securing budgets, procuring visas, juggling political interests, and translating cross-culturally and across languages, to meeting the production needs particular to each program, presenters spend countless hours on logistics but are also frequently deeply involved in and knowledgeable about the local traditions and performance histories. They often spend years developing relationships with the performers. Local government bureaucracies often need to be convinced of the value ... Read More

  • Kathy Foley
    • Abstract: Mary Kathleen Foley (b. 1947) was born in Waukegan, Illinois. She finished her undergraduate degree in English at Rosemont College, a small Catholic women’s school, completing sixteen years in schools run by Holy Child nuns. This is not, perhaps, the background one expects for a dalang of Sundanese wayang golek or Southeast Asian performing arts, though it may explain an interest in ritual and religion seen in some of her work. Foley, who had always wanted to be an actor, participated in theatre as an extracurricular activity in high school and college and did summer stock, as theatre and dance were not offered as formal classes in any of the Catholic schools she attended. She received a BA in ... Read More

  • Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei
    • Abstract: I first met Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei (Fig. 1) at the Comparative Drama Conference in Columbus, Ohio, in 2001. I was a graduate student preparing to make my first trip to Japan to study contemporary theatre, and she kindly met with me over coffee and discussed my plans for research. She also indulged what now seem to me to be ridiculous notions of my own scholarly ambitions and carefully, and insightfully, asked questions and illustrated how both the paper I presented as well as my forthcoming dissertation could be improved. At the time I knew a bit about her research on Terayama; I was unfamiliar with her role as a teacher, playwright, and theorist. It was only later, after many subsequent meetings and ... Read More

    • Abstract: Dinsman open arms with cast and crew of Teater. (Photo: Noor Kasmara Sokarnor, Picturehouse Studio Malaysia) Teater Atas Pokok was an ambitious project that sent actors hundreds of feet up into an impressive tree in the central park of Shah Alam, capital of Selangor State. The poet-author-director Dinsman (Fig. 1), who conceived the project, Teater Atas Pokok actors swing from the large tree. (Photo: Noor Kasmara Sokarnor, Picturehouse Studio Malaysia) is among the well-known authors of Malay theatre and poetry who first emerged as a playwright in the 1970s.

  • God Bless Baseball by Okada Toshiki (review)
    • Abstract: A Korean-speaking man (Lee Yoon Jae) repeatedly loses his train of thought as he tries to explain to two women (Wi Sung Hee and Nozu Aoi) the rules of baseball. The terms that confuse the women are second nature to him: inning, strike, out, first base, home plate. But knowing something does not mean you can explain it. This idea, introduced in the comic opening, ran throughout Okada Toshiki’s God Bless Baseball, presented by the Japan Society as part of the Public Theatre’s Under the Radar Festival. Despite the everyday feel, reminiscent of a weekend morning at the neighborhood park, the performance underscored the difficulty of communication. Although none of the characters seemed to notice, the performance ... Read More

  • A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Wu Hsing-kuo (review)
    • Abstract: To celebrate the four-hundredth anniversary of Shakespeare’s death Taiwan as well as the UK paid tribute to the Bard. A Midsummer Night’s Dream premiered in Taipei in March 2016 done by Contemporary Legend Theater (CLT), registering issues of tradition and modernity in Taiwan’s Intercultural Shakespeare from the perspective of translocality. CLT’s production supports ideas advanced by Huang in Chinese Shakespeares (2009) challenging fidelity, authenticity, and cultural exclusivity of Shakespeare as confined to Anglophone Shakespeares. This performance combined Chinese and Western elements trying to realize its dream of innovation. Shakespeare has become an iconic brand—via glocalization, re-visualized in ... Read More

  • Theatre and Performance in the Asia-Pacific: Regional Modernities in the
           Global Era by Denise Varney, et al. (review)
    • Abstract: This book embodies the tension(s) inherent in its own topic. It seeks to explore the similarities and differences in regional performance in four Asian nations. “This book offers a series of case studies that explore theatre practice in Australia, Indonesia, Japan and Singapore, chosen for their contrasting histories and cultures, to show how theatre produces transformations at national, regional, and global levels” (p. 1). It is also not coincidental that those nations are also the respective areas of expertise of the four authors. Australian identity is hybrid, European settler culture both incorporating and being resisted by indigenous culture, which has its own modernity. Japan is different in ... Read More

  • Gao Xingjian’s Post-Exile Plays: Transnationalism and Postdramatic
           Theatre by Mary Mazzilli (review)
    • Abstract: Since Gao Xingjian won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2000, his work has drawn a steady stream of attention from scholars of Chinese literature, culture, and theatre. Much of this scholarship has grappled with the same questions that caused controversy when Gao was awarded the Nobel: should he be considered a Chinese writer, when he has French citizenship and the government of the People’s Republic of China refuses to acknowledge him as such? Alternatively, can we brand him a writer of Chinese literature, even though he now also writes in French? Or are terms such as “transcultural” and “transnational” better descriptors despite the difficulty of precisely defining them? In Gao Xingjian’s ... Read More

  • Street Performers and Society in Urban Japan, 1600–1900: The Beggar’s
           Gift by Gerald Groemer (review)
    • Abstract: When Japan entered the horizon of Western perception after the forced opening of the country in the mid-nineteenth century, street performers were among the first Japanese seen in European and American cities. Jugglers, top spinners, acrobats, and other petty artists recruited by Western brokers rushed on world tours, to baffle large audiences with their stupendous dexterity, establishing a worldwide Japanese dominance in certain circus acts into the twentieth century. During the Meiji period, performing artists of all colors remained profitable Japanese exports, along with handicrafts, such as ukiyoe, porcelain, and textiles. The performers’ exotic bodies and skills, exhibited in zoologic gardens, circuses ... Read More

  • Onnagata: A Labyrinth of Gendering In Kabuki Theatre by Mari Isaka
           (review)
    • Abstract: Isaka offers one common definition of the term onnagata as “those in charge of women’s roles” in the kabuki theatre (p. 6). Many studies on onnagata modify this definition, replacing the nongendered pronoun “those” with the qualified noun “male actors,” implying that a male body is the only site for the onnagata’s performance of “womanliness.” In her book, Isaka argues against this gendered specificity through analysis of texts by and about famous onnagata and by presenting examples of women actors who were successful onnagata. In so doing, Isaka shows a fluidity of gender performance in the art of the onnagata, leading us into the labyrinth of “womanliness” that flows between the fictional world of the ... Read More

  • Javaphilia: American Love Affairs with Javanese Music and Dance by Henry
           Spiller (review)
    • Abstract: Through case studies, this text traces the path of four artists—Eva Gauthier (1885–1958), Hubert Stowitts (1892–1953), Mantle Hood (1918–2005), and Lou Harrison (1917–2003). Each used aspects of Javanese music and dance to play to American audiences. They were “Javaphiles,” lovers of things Javanese. Spiller argues that the Western audience’s lack of knowledge about Java allowed these individuals to appear as experts for what was usually a very selective reading of the Indonesian arts, based on personal predilections and limited understanding of both the culture and music. The psychological, historical, and sociological circumstances enter into narratives of four interesting but sometimes little-known ... Read More
