CONVERSAZIONE SUL TEATRO-DANZA BALINESE TOPENG ED ESPERIENZE DI COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE A BALICarmencita Palermo
Il teatro danza balinese è conosciuto tra i teatranti Europei grazie agli scritti di Artaud che hanno ispirato registi e attori del XX secolo. Oggi l'idea di Bali non è solo un'idea esotica, ma una realtà raggiungibile - da qui il pellegrinaggio teatrale verso Bali. Il pellegrinaggio di Carmencita è andato oltre ad alcuni mesi di training e nella sua dimostrazione spettacolo condivide i risultati di più di 25 anni di studio della cultura balinese. Con il suo racconto condivide ciò che ha imparato dai suoi maestri sul contesto rituale della maschera dell'unica isola induista dell'arcipelago indonesiano che, attraverso il respiro, rendono il corpo-maschera offerta.
Carmencita Palermo è ricercatrice, performer, organizzatrice e regista di teatro di comunità con un dottorato di ricerca presso l'Università della Tasmania-Australia sul teatro-danza balinese con maschere Topeng. I suoi studi sul campo sulla cultura e teatro Balinese iniziarono nei primi anni '90 quando ha frequentato l'Istituto delle Arti Indonesiane di Denpasar ed è diventata allieva dei maestri I Ketut Kantor, I Made Sija, I Nyoman Cerita, I Ketut Kodi. La sua ricerca e la sua pratica teatrale esplorano le dinamiche di interazione tra corpo, maschera, musica, ambiente e pubblico in differenti contesti culturali.
Ha pubblicato i suoi studi sullo spettacolo e la politica culturale balinese, sull'incorporazione della maschera e sul teatro interculturale come capitoli in volumi editi e in riviste accademiche di valore internazionale come Asian Theatre Journal, Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific, Indonesia and the Malay World. In Italia conduce progetti e insegna presso l'Università’ degli studi di Napoli "L'Orientale".

Co-Editors Dr Corinna Di Niro (Australia) and Dr Olly Crick (UK) talk about the book they are currently working on: Commedia in the Asia-Pacific
CONVERSAZIONE SULLA PRESENZA DELLA COMMEDIA DELL’ARTE NELL'AREA ASIA-PACIFICOlly Crick
Olly Crick currently works as a freelance educator and teacher, mainly in the field of Commedia dell'Arte. Commedia dell'Arte usually confines itself to western romance languages and euro-centric gesture codes. What happens when Commedia and its practitioners set up shop in the Asia-pacific region? Working in partnership with Australian Dr Corinna di Niro, Olly Crick is currently editing a book that details precisely this: how commedia has fared, this century, in Australia, New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Bali and Thailand. Adapting to local circumstances and yet keeping its distinctive features, it appears in various forms: as a hybrid, as barter, as cross-cultural performance, as well as a way of introducing the 'east' to the fundamentals of western theatre history and practice.
