COVID-19 has put safety in place as a new standard in the creation, production, circulation, and consumption of the performing arts, just as it has in our day to day lives. As the physical movement between countries is becoming more challenging, we’ve seen more limitations on the international exchange and the circulation of the performing arts.
How will the international exchange, mobility and the circulation of the performing arts be possible? In the face with climate crisis, how the international touring should be planned in a manner that is eco-friendly or causes least amount of pollution or minimum environmental impact? How have the advances of technology impacted on the process of creation, production and consumption in the arts?
The opening forum at PAMS 2021 invites four international colleagues who tries various attempts to find out alternative directions and practices for international mobility and circulation of the performing arts in the post-pandemic era and will share and discuss challenges and its possibilities.
