Event description

Description

The conference will provide a unique opportunity for writers and practitioners, academics and scholars, young people and the general public to explore and celebrate the plays of writers from both Southeast Asia and from the British East Asian community. It will be a pioneering event that will enable fresh discussion of the various issues affecting theatre-making in the UK and Southeast Asia with the aim of fostering greater mutual understanding and cross-cultural exchange.

Aurora Metro Books published Southeast Asian Plays, the first comprehensive collection of plays in English from the region in 2016 and launched it at the National Gallery in Singapore. Aurora Metro is planning to publish a first collection of British East Asian Plays in the UK in 2018. By featuring playwrights from both collections, the Conference will provide an important platform for performance and discussion of their work, reflecting the increasingly important relationship between the UK and Southeast Asia.

The conference will involve discussion, workshops and performance.It will also provide opportunities for learning, new research and scholarship in an under-researched field.

Aurora Metro is collaborating with Goldsmiths University and Tara Theatre on this project.Other parties who have expressed an interest in collaboration include: East 15 Theatre Conservatoire, Regent’s Park University, Asia House, Royal Holloway University and The Fence.

A number of tickets are available for students and other concessions at £15 for the 2 day event and evening playreading. Contact cheryl@aurorametro.com if you require a concessionary ticket.
