Is the NATION a FICTION or a REALITY? And who creates the NATION? Who creates the fiction of a nation? Who dreams these things up?
Theatre is one place where alternative realities of a country are imagined and therefore created. It is a country of Gold Rain and Hailstones. A Country which dreams of Atomic Jaya. A Country where the Death of a Patriot is not the death of a Patriot and where you cannot **** Mr Birch. It is Brickfields, The Sandpit and Bolehwood, a place where Pak Dogol, Tok Perak, Athan and Ang Tau Mui live out their lives in the margins of the main narrative.
In this Exchange between Malaysian and Japanese theatre makers and researchers we ask how theatre can and should create strong alternative fictions.
