Every three years, Intercultural Theatre Institute (ITI) organises the Asian Intercultural Conference (AIC) — an international gathering of theatre professionals, scholars and academics.
After a brief hiatus due to Covid-19, we are delighted that this year the 2023 Conference returns with the theme Preparing to Act: History and Heritage as Resource, presented once again in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
The theme opens up a range of discourses and initiates dialogue among actors, performers, theatre-makers, transdisciplinary artists, academics, and festival organisers. The aim is to explore specific methods, techniques, knowledge systems and technologies drawn from the diverse histories and heritages of world theatre. What can we learn from these practices, traditions and lineages that can be repurposed for the here and now? What needs to be unlearned, re-formed or re-presented for the contemporary stages of the world?
