Southeast Asian and Western Approaches to Narratives and Performance Art

The conference and performance programme seeks to open up new perspectives on storytelling, narrativisations of history and their embodiment in performative arts and practices in Southeast Asia. The combination of lecture and performance programme reflects the conference's desire to explore the possibilities of how curatorial, institutional and scientific practices can learn from artistic practices.
