Techno-Orientalism is in collaboration with course JAPN447: Technologies of Japanese Performance. The course aims to weave theory, history, and practice-based creative research together to give students a holistic understanding of performance within the framework of Global Asias. To begin, we will contextualize what is considered to be Global Asias, including diasporas, and its formation through recent history. From thiscenter, wewill utilize case studies of traditional theatre as well as the transformations these stories take on with the introduction of new media. With digital media production and an introduction to other emergent media methodologies at the core of the practice component, students will have the opportunity to create an adaptation of their own from our historicized source material. As a result, students will get a holistic perspective of the racial formation and identities within Global Asias, read and write their own adaptations based on the stories sourced from East Asia, and produce a short teleplay based on their collaborative creative research.
