Workshop : Comparative dramaturgy: methods and challenges. Belgian and Japanese perspectives

Publié le 16 juin 2023 Mis à jour le 25 juillet 2023

This first workshop within the framework of a joint research project between Waseda University and Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) aims to stimulate transcultural perspectives both on theatre historiography and on contemporary theatre practices, ...

...challenging established narratives on theatre history and contemporary performing arts which often take the context of the nation-state for granted or, the other way around, reduce the complexity of transcultural hybridization to postmodern globalization.

The aim of this first workshop is to identify possible shared frameworks and references through well-defined research cases – European or Japanese – taken from a specific historiographic context. The framework on the workshop is focused on exchange and discussion. The organizers will provide synthetic translation Japanese – English (in both directions) when required.

Patrick De Vos, Vanessa Frangville, Shintaro Fujii, Sara Jansen, Ryuichi Kodama, Kyoko Iwaki, Nikolaus Müller-Schöll, Kaori Oku, Marielle Pelissero, Tomoko Seki, Seigo Tanokuchi, Franziska Trapp, Christophe Triau, Tadashi Uchino and Karel Vanhaesebrouck (provisional program)
