THEATRE WARS: RETURN OF THE ARTIST


Join us at Asian Intercultural Conference (AIC) 2017, a global gathering of actors, writers, directors, scholars and researchers.

Behind the tongue-in-cheek theme of this edition of AIC is a serious concern — the survival, agency and autonomy of the individual artist working in theatre in an age of unprecedented change due to globalisation and its accompanying “capitalist” forces. The “capitalist” challenge to theatre-making and the changes it has wrought are irrefutably pervasive and pitiless, and quite possibly permanent.

It may well be theatre’s Death Star. What is an artist to do? How can s/he respond? Is resistance futile?
