IATC/AICT International Symposium on Asia

"International Collaboration and the Role of Criticism"

When performing art becomes the axis of an "International collaboration" of diversified Asia, people and information transgress the country borders, or even subverts such boundaries. On the other hand it creates disparities between countries, and vanquishes order and uniformity. How can such phenomenon ever be judged?  We have invited critics from around Asia and the world to feature on these border ripping, experimental collaborations to explore the potential of theatrical expression.
