Asian Performing Arts: Collaboration and Exchange

Keynote speaker: Professor Keith Howard, Department of Music, SOAS, University of London

This academic symposium on Asian music, theatre and dance addresses the state of play in collaborative performance making in contemporary Asia and the participation of Asian artists in global performance projects and exchanges. Through education, travel, rising incomes, new communication technologies and English-language competency (among other factors), boundaries between art worlds (‘traditional’, ‘modern’, ‘contemporary’, ‘popular’, ‘local’, ‘national’, ‘regional’, ‘international’) are increasingly porous and Asian artists, creative materials and cultural ideas travel with relative ease. At the same time, there are mounting concerns around creative rights and ownership of cultural properties that impact directly on collaborative practices and the sharing of skills and knowledge.
