ITI Theatre Forum 2018 - Of Use, Abuse and Misuse: The “Intercultural” in Theatre

Theatre Forum 2018Banner2 small

Where once "multicultural" was enough and "cross-cultural" was the au courant, the "intercultural' has become a popular buzzword widely bandied around.

However, what exactly do we mean by “intercultural”?

How is the “intercultural” being manifested and represented today?

What are the various tensions, forces and points of rupture that form the “intercultural”?

Are there differing understandings of the “intercultural” and can they be reconciled?

How can the arts, in particular theatre, play a role in shaping meanings and discourses about the “intercultural”?

Come hear from:

  • Corrie Tan (Associate Editor, Arts Equator)
  • Liu Xiaoyi (Artistic Director, Emergency Stairs)
  • Soultari Amin Farid (Joint Artistic Director, Bhumi Collective)
  • Zelda Tatiana Ng (Creative Director, Ground Z-0)
Moderated by Charlene Rajendran (Assistant Professor, National Institute of Education)
Opening remarks by T. Sasitharan (Director, Intercultural Theatre Institute)
Closing remarks by Alfian Sa'at (Resident Playwright, W!LD RICE)

This forum is held in collaboration with the Arts and Culture Management Program, at the Singapore Management University School of Social Sciences.
