CFP - Asian Performing Arts: Collaboration and Exchange

CFP - Asian Performing Arts: Collaboration and Exchange

Date
30/05/2017
Location:
Handa Noh Theatre, Royal Holloway University of London
Description
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.
