SPEAKERS: 
ANURADHA KAPURCHARLENE RAJENDRANKENTARO MATSUIMARION D'CRUZ

This roundtable session addresses the issue of whether there is such a ‘thing’ or concept as Asian dramaturgy. More importantly, it hopes to juxtapose culturally-specific dramaturgical practices across transnational borders and regions such as India, Southeast Asia, and East Asia/Japan. The session also hopes to shed some light on the practice of dramaturgy and the dramaturg in history that may have eluded the formal (Western) definition.

[PANEL]
MODERATOR: SANKAR VENKATESWARAN
SPEAKERS: CHARLENE RAJENDRAN, DAVID PLEDGER, KEN TAKIGUCHI, NESS ROQUE


Definitions of intercultural and interdisciplinary performances continue to undergo shifts and reinvention. This panel sheds light on new intercultural territory and the issues that cross linguistic borders of translation and transliteration. It will also discuss rethinking the cultural and social norms and mores of interactive arts. The interdisciplinary takes on fresh meaning, from social media platforms that perform into material public spaces, to re-interpretations of festival curation.
