Beyond Orientalism (Discussion)
October 17, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
East Side Freedom Library will host a roundtable discussion, sponsored by Theater Mu and Pangea World Theater, on “Beyond Orientalism.”
Local artists will lead the discussion and respond to questions like: “How can the creative community advance race equity in the theater?” “How do artists and producers work together to eradicate yellowface and brownface?”
The artists will open a fishbowl discussion, leading to a roundtable and a more general discussion. This conversation follows in the footsteps of similar dialogues, which were held in May in New York City and in September in Philadelphia, with Asian American theater artists in the lead.
Free and open to all.
