KEYNOTE #2:
CHARLENE RAJENDRAN
 ON "DIFFERENCE AND AESTHETIC AGENCY – DRAMATURGING CHOICES FOR CHANGE"

SPEAKER: CHARLENE RAJENDRAN
CHAIR: ALFIAN SA'AT


CHARLENE RAJENDRAN argues that a dramaturg’s engagement through active presence, deep listening and political consciousness, are critical dimensions in performance-making that push artists to take on leadership roles in relation to their artistic choices. Particularly in the development of experimental interdisciplinary and intercultural work, a dramaturg deals with the dynamics of difference through questions and responses, provocations and suggestions, advocating for change that shifts a balance of power. Navigating the tensions, uncertainties and precarities that surface becomes part of the creative work that a dramaturg facilitates, making difference a catalyst for aesthetic agency.

ROUNDTABLE #2: 
DIFFERENCE & DEFERENCE 
 THE QUESTION OF CULTURE

SPEAKERS: ALFIAN SA'AT, ANNETTE SHUN WAH, EDWIN KEMP ATTRILL
MODERATOR: KOK  HENG LEUN

This roundtable will begin with a provocation from each speaker on their artistic experiences dealing with difference in socio-cultural milieu through their work in performances or the arts in general. What are some of the ways in which cultural difference – or just plain difference – is mediated in/through performance? What are the urgent issues within the broad theme of cultural difference in today's artistic works? How does an artist negotiate just plain old difference in his/her works? The speakers will present their views on some of these questions and dialogue between each other to highlight urgent matters on culture, society and the arts.
