  • Princess Norodom Buppha Devi (1943–2019): A Life in Dance
    • Abstract: We are most fortunate that in 2003, Robam Preah Reach Trop (Khmer Court dance) was inscribed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Heritage. However, that is not enough; we need to do more to preserve this art form. After my teachers' generation and myself, the younger generation knows very little about this heritage. This is why I implore everybody from all walks of life to help us preserve this national treasure.1Princess Norodom Buppha Devi (1943–2019), who passed away on 18 November 2019, was a daughter of King Norodom Sihanouk (1922–2012) and Neak Moneang Phat Kanhol (1920–1969); Samdech Reach Botrei Preah Ream Norodom Buppha Devi was a title given to her by her father. Her Royal Highness played a significant role ... Read More

  • Minutes of "Evening to Sum Up the Conclusions from the Stay of the Theatre
           of Mei Lanfang in the Soviet Union" at The All-Union Society for Cultural
           Relations with Foreign Countries (VOKS) on Sunday, 14 April 1935
    • Abstract: To many in today's China as well as internationally, the Chinese nandan (male performer of female roles), Mei Lanfang (1894–1961), excelled as the most prominent example of the artistic excellence traditional Chinese theatre, xiqu, was able to achieve in the twentieth century. His life and stage art are by far the most documented and internationally discussed. Mei toured abroad several times, performing on repeated occasions in Japan and Hong Kong, in 1930 in the United States, and in 1935 and 1953 in the Soviet Union.Among his tours, Mei's Soviet trip in 1935 stands out as the one which generated the richest exchange with prominent personalities in Western theatre. Its concluding event was a Sino-Soviet artistic ... Read More

  • Theatre of "Disbelief": Meng Jinghui's Cynical Metatheatre in Contemporary
           China
    • Abstract: Meng Jinghui (b. 1964) is one of the most prominent and controversial experimental theatre directors in contemporary China. He made his fame as a leading avant-gardist in the early 1990s by boldly pushing various thematic and aesthetic boundaries in his theatrical productions. Since the turn of the century, his works have generated heated debates on whether he has betrayed the avant-garde spirit in order to cater to the mainstream cultural market. Many Chinese scholars deplore Meng's transformation as a surrender to commercialism (Lin 2002; Huang 2003; Ji 2005). Meanwhile, other scholars have come to his defense (Conceison 2002, 2014, 2017; Ferrari 2005, 2012a, 2012b; Hsiung 2009; Li 2010). Rossella Ferrari has ... Read More

  • Performing Lost Politics: Yijing yisheng Yibusheng (Ibsen in One Take)
           (2012) and Wang Chong's Double-Coded New Wave Theatre
    • Abstract: With a special section entitled "Journey to the East," the May/June 2017 issue of American Theatre magazine directs the attention of theatre scholars and practitioners to the lively theatrical scene in contemporary China. While Anglophone academia has seen a number of publications on Chinese avant-garde director Meng Jinghui in the past ten years,1 it is high time to bring a younger generation of artists, addressed by some scholars as "the Post-Meng generation," into the discussion (Jiang 2009: 92). Directors who belong to this cohort include Wang Chong, Huang Ying, Shao Zehui, Zhao Miao, among others (Jiang 2009: 92; Ferrari 2016: 136–137).2 A loosely applied label that does not have a place in the common ...

  • Yoo Chijin's Strategy to Popularize Singeuk in Colonial Korea: The Story
           of Chunhyang and Porgy
    • Abstract: The Geugyesul Yeonguhoe (The Research Association of Theatrical Art, hereafter the RATA) presented Dorothy and DuBose Heyward's Porgy in January 1937.1 The play was performed five times between 21 January and 23 January in the Bumin-gwan (府民館, Civic Center), the largest performance site in Gyeongseong (the Japanese name for Seoul). As the RATA advertised, "Porgy is the first and most spectacular work in colonial Korea with much music and dance" (Gija 1937b). Porgy was the RATA's fourteenth production and its first American play performance. Because colonial Korea did not have direct diplomatic relations with America and there was little cultural exchange between the two countries, American theatre was little known ... Read More

    • Abstract: The Ottoman Empire became acquainted with western theatre in the seventeenth century when foreign embassy personnel and wealthy minorities began to organize performances in their private residences.1 Many embassies owned their private theatres and on special occasions they organized celebrations which included theatrical performances. Turkish political elites were also invited to these gatherings (And 1964: 65), but public performances began a century later during the rule of Abdülmecid I (r. 1839–1861).It was not until one year after the rule of Sultan Abdülmecid and the declaration of Tanzimat Fermanı (Edict of Reorganization) in 1839 that foreign theatres began to stage western plays in their own languages for ...

  • We Are Not Solid Beings: Presence in Butoh, Buddhism, and Phenomenology
    • Abstract: We travel in dreams and thought, becoming porous when we dance and speak. We sound a presence seeming real when we appear out of nowhere. Our bones contend and hum the minute our chests waken and rattle. Through sound, we fly out of rooms and speak beyond flesh, while echoes bring bodies back to somewhere here. Moving here and now, we live space and vanish freely as we let go the struggle of muscle, replacing this with the patience of suchness in letting be, sounding in color or music or bodily movement or prose or poetry or anything expressive and dynamic by nature. Human beings are not suspended solids dancing in space—we exist space. Morphing through figure and feature, we sound a vague and passing presence ... Read More

  • Creating Bhumi for Sanggar Çudamani, Bali
    • Abstract: Bhumi produced by Sanggar Çudamani (Çudamani Studio), a Balinese company based in Gianyar, was created for the group's tour in the United States from 13 February 2018 to 6 March 2018 through a lengthy collaborative process.1 It was performed at Royce Hall (UCLA), Broad Stage (Santa Monica College), Pomona College, UC Santa Barbara, Mondavi Center (UC Davis), Stanford University, and Hertz Hall (UC Berkeley), gaining strong reviews in the Los Angeles Times and other media (see for example, Swed 2018 and Slayton 2018).Çudamani was founded in 1997 in Pengosekan village on the outskirts of Ubud, a region where the arts flourished in the royal courts of the past, but where tourist performance income was by the 1990s ...

  • Masks and Costumes of Ankiya Bhaona
    • Abstract: For the past few years, I have been researching costume design work in South Asia, both in traditional performances that have classical and ritual roots and modern performances that are postcolonial in their provenance such as films and modern dance. In investigating dance costume design, the area of mask design process is particularly striking. Several performance traditions and ritual performances from South Asia such as chhau, ankiya bhaona, and Buddhist cham use masks for semiotic purposes in conveying specific character-based symbolism. The use of masks and highly embellished costumes in theseSita Haran or Abduction of Sita by Ravana performed in 2019 in Samaguri Sattra, now separated as New Samaguri Sattra. ... Read More

  • Cultural Anxiety and the Reconstruction of the Xiqu Tradition through Mei
           Lanfang's Overseas Performances, 1919–1930
    • Abstract: Jingju (Beijing/Peking Opera) is often described as "total theatre," a "place of intersection of all the arts." With the conventions utilized in its performance, it "transcends a resemblance to life and builds an overall effect that conveys its essence" (Wichmann 1988: 185–188; Wichmann 1991:1–6). While this widely accepted statement effectively portrays the "essence" of jingju, it is not a recent theoretical formulation. In fact, theories of the essence of jingju are predominantly a result of the cultural anxiety that developed within the Chinese intelligentsia following the fall of the Qing dynasty.In 1915, a cluster of Westernized intellectuals launched the Xin wenhua yundong (新文化運動 New Culture Movement), in an ...

  • Rhythmic Tendencies in the Choreographies of Dairakudakan's Muramatsu
           Takuya
    • Abstract: Dairakudakan, the world's largest butoh troupe, wraps up its 47th season this year and the company has received increasing attention as its founder, Maro Akaji (b. 1943), celebrated his 75th birthday in 2018. Maro has published an autobiography and, recently, a French biography on him by Aya Soejima has also been issued under the title of Danser avec l'Invisible (Dancing with the Invisible). The company has begun touring biannually to Vancouver, Canada (in addition to its regular presentations in France); and, perhaps most notably, the group presented a debut performance at the prestigious New National Theatre in Tokyo. Despite this attention, there remains limited scholarly analysis of Dairakudakan's work ... Read More

  • "An Island of Death": Homo Sacer and Ungrievable Deaths
    • Abstract: Jeju Island is internationally known as "the Hawaii of Asia" because of its scenic landscapes. However, what is less known about one of the most popular tourist destinations of South Korea is that this island contains a variety of tragic sites in relation to the Jeju massacre (1948–1949), which took place during the April 3 Incident.1 In fact, Jeju Island is called "a space of death" in the sense that many unknown graves, destructed villages, and memorial sites are scattered all over the island as a result of the massacre (Hwang 2016: 50).This incident, known as one of the most atrocious mass killings in the modern history of Korea,2 is understood as a "prelude to the Korean War (1950–1953)" (Kwon 2009: 4). It is ... Read More

  • Of Shadows dir. by Yi Cui (review)
    • Abstract: Yi Cui's documentary film, Of Shadows, sets the daily struggles of a troupe of rural Chinese shadow puppeteers from Huan Xian county against the glorified vision of rural folk arts promoted in government rhetoric and ceremonies. The movie shifts back and forth between intimate scenes of the puppeteers' activities—performing in remote mountain settings, eating and talking amongst themselves, preparing for performances—and the rehearsals for and final elaborate festivities of the "Third Shadow Theatre and Folklore Festival of Huan Xian County," organized by government officials.The director thoughtfully focuses on the mundane but necessary tasks that make up the lives of puppeteers. Packed into an old truck, they ... Read More

  • New Postcolonial Dialectics: An Intercultural Comparison of Indian and
           Nigerian Plays by Sarbani Sen Vengadasalam (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, Sarbani Sen Vengadasalam talks about her scholarly investigation on interculturalist philosophy in India and Nigeria before and after their Independence. Her research revolves around the struggle of Indian and Nigerian writers in finding a middle path for achieving a "cultural renaissance" in their respective countries by highlighting the role of interculturalism which neither denies tradition nor rejects western culture. Therefore, as a case study in her book, she presents the theatrical plays written by Rabindranath Tagore (Red Oleanders, 1925), Wole Soyinka (The Lion and Jewel, 1959 and The Road, 1965), and Badal Sircar (Procession, 1983) to examine the efficacy of interculturalism as a critical ...

  • China's Chaplin: Comic Stories and Farces by Xu Zhuodai (review)
    • Abstract: Together with Weimar Berlin and pre-WWII New York, Republican Shanghai has become a historic city symbolic of the tumultuous development of capitalism in the first half of the twentieth century. This curated image of Old Shanghai contributes to and is in turn shaped by the city's rise as a global financial and business center in recent years. Accompanying our cultural imagination of the metropolis are mushrooming fictions, non-fictions, films, and theatre as well as Shanghai studies, an academic field that has been expanding since the 1980s. In contrast to these interpretive efforts that either conform to or interrogate the "Old Shanghai" construct, translations of primary sources, especially popular writings, are ... Read More

  • Adapting Western Classics for the Chinese Stage by Shouhua Qi (review)
    • Abstract: Shouhua Qi's current monograph, Adapting Western Classics for the Chinese Stage, is, as the author describes, a "comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of … adaptation of Western classics" (p. xv) for the Chinese stage from the early twentieth century to the present. It is a valuable addition to the literature on theatrical performance, drama reform, and transnational, translingual adaptation in the twentieth century. By analyzing many productions, ranging from an experimental 1998 "synthesis sequel" of Beckett's Waiting for Godot and Chekhov's Three Sisters to attempts at "faithful" adaptations, such as Huang Zuolin's 1959 production of Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage and her Children, Qi sheds light on how ...

  • Tokyo Listening: Sound and Sense in a Contemporary City by Lorraine
           Plourde (review)
    • Abstract: In 1973, Canadian music composer and environmental activist Murray Schafer, in a groundbreaking project named The Vancouver Soundscape, employed the concept of soundscape as a theoretical lens to explore the critical role of auditory experience in the formation of an urban landscape. Schafer's experimental research has become a monumental work for academic scholars and sound designers enthralled by the interplay between acoustic effect and city landscape. Lorraine Plourde's Tokyo Listening: Sound and Sense in a Contemporary City provides new insights in this field as the author engages in an interdisciplinary study of Tokyo's urban landscape using ethnomusicology, anthropology, cultural and performance studies.In ...

  • Cultural Labour: Conceptualizing the 'Folk Performance' in India by Brahma
           Prakash (review)
    • Abstract: Brahma Prakash's book, Cultural Labour: Conceptualizing the 'Folk Performance' in India, presents new conceptual frameworks that grapple with the complexities of "folk performance" in India. Against the classist and casteist proclivities that linger even in post-colonial Indian theatre scholarship, Prakash centers the cultural labor performed by bodies on the lower rungs of a casteist-feudal society. He argues that like the progressive Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA, 1943–1967) and the "theatre of roots" movement (late 1950s–), post-colonial Indian theatre scholarship has tended to capitalize the artistic and aesthetic value of "folk performances," often ignoring questions of caste and labor, invariably ...
