DAVID PLEDGER ON "OPERATING SYSTEMS IN CONCENTRIC CIRCLES"
68min / 1 OCT, 1400 - 1510

To open Satellite Symposium 2017, DAVID PLEDGER delivers a keynote presentation on his perspective of dramaturgy as an operating system, not just for the arts, but for society as well, which enables and facilitates discourse and social change.







ROUNDTABLE #1:
THE PUBLIC AND THE ARTS
124min / 1 OCT, 1550 - 1730

The first roundtable discussed the how arts can galvanise public spaces, special interest groups, different publics and communities through various social themes and issues. Singapore artist-researcher SHAWN CHUA discusses the capacity of performance tours for creating "frictions", moments of disruption and opportunities for reflexivity for audiences. RACHEL SWAIN, artistic director of Australian indigenous intercultural dance theatre company Marrugeku, talks about the touring production "Gudirr Gudirr", a work that explores inequality, violence and erasure in native communities, and about presenting the work in indigenous community town Adyaloon. KOK HENG LEUN is the artistic director of Singaporean theatre company Drama Box, and he shares the company's forum theatre productions aimed at encouraging social discourse and social change.
