Second edition of Japan-Britain Contemporary Theatre Exchange

One of the leading experts on contemporary Japanese performance, Dr Kyoko Iwaki from the University of Antwerp will be giving a talk Activating Abject in a Super-Sanitized Society: Ichihara Satoko’s Madama Butterfly. In the talk, Iwaki will talk about how Ichihara, whose works have been touring around Europe, challenges the political violence of Puccini’s opera through the scope of women of colour dramaturgy.

The talk will be followed by a roundtable Encounters and Mis-deliveries with Dr Kyoko Iwaki (University of Antwerp), Dr Richard Talbot (Senior Lecturer in Performance, University of Salford), Beri Juraic (PhD Candidate in Theatre, Lancaster University) with Dr Karen Jürs-Munby (Senior Lecturer in Theatre, Lancaster University) as chair.

Peru-born Japanese director and playwright Yudai Kamisato and Jerusalem-born stand-up comedian Daphna Baram will also be giving a presentation about performance installation Dear Potential Foreigners taking place at the Storey gallery in Lancaster 28-29 June 2024.
