The programme consists of weekly workshops, masterclasses and Q&A sessions with leading theatre professionals from across Suffolk, East Anglia and the wider UK.

ESEA representation in the arts: how far have we come and where to next? 

A free panel discussion about the work contemporary artists are making to increase East/Southeast Asian representation (ESEA).

Join the Undone Theatre team as they discuss orientalism and the misrepresentation of ESEA cultures on stage. With theatre maker Joey Jepps (Kakilang Arts), musical director Amy Hsu (My Neighbour Totoro) and curator Hoyee Tse (London Metropolitan University). The panel will initiate a discussion about their artistic and curatorial practices, how their identities and backgrounds inform their work and their experiences of working within the UK arts sector.

WHERE: Djam Lecture Theatre, SOAS

WHEN: Thursday 21 March, 6:30pm

The talk will also be live-streamed. If you are interested in watching the live-stream, keep an eye on our social media on the day—you can find us on Instagram and Twitter @undonetheatre.

This panel event is organised by Undone Theatre and SOAS Chinese Culture Society and is a part of Undone Theatre’s new show SO THAT YOU MAY GO BEYOND THE SEA.

A Japanese stewardess and a British pilot walk onto a plane. Twenty-five years later, their son Joey is thinking of ending things with his Italian boyfriend. Turning to his parents’ interracial relationship for guidance, he embarks on a journey to connect with his roots. But as Joey learns more about his family, a pattern begins to emerge: the notes of Puccini’s Madama Butterfly underscore a century of Asian misrepresentation, orientalism, and exoticisation.
