Call for Papers
Global Encounters in Southeast Asian Performing Arts
I wish to inform you of a forthcoming symposium to be hosted by Bangkok University, Thailand and University of Victoria, Canada.
The World Symposium on Global Encounters in Southeast Asian Performing Arts: International Theatre Festival, Conference and Workshop will be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 1-3 February, 2013. The main objective of the symposium is to function as a platform of exploration, in search of a lasting live performance culture that can establish an influential and sustainable position in Southeast Asia, regardless of whether it is expressed in traditional, contemporary or postmodern form. It is a communal gathering for performing arts academics, practitioners and enthusiasts with the aim of establishing a productive dialogues and common ground with regard to ways in which Southeast Asian creative arts will survive under the tremendous pressure of the global spectrum of changes currently taking place.
There will be 4 distinctive themes of the conference panels; ‘performance & new media’, ‘traditional performance in the changing world’, ‘spectrum of contemporary vs. intercultural performance’, and ‘transnationalism and globalization’. The themes of the international theatre festival and workshop are also both interrelated and operated under the themes.
If you would like to contribute and participate, please go to www.buworldsymposium.com. The deadline for abstracts are on 30 September 2012.
