ITI Theatre Forum 2016 (27 Aug)

Young theatre-makers addressed “Challenges and Counters: The questions for today’s theatre-makers”.  Playwright Aswani Aswath, one of the panel speakers, recalls, “The forum was a great platform for us to share our ideas, stories and network with others from the theatre community.”

Sasi at WAAPA (2 Sep)

ITI Director T. Sasitharan spoke on interculturalism at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) in Perth, with students and staff from the performing arts and aboriginal theatre courses. Sasi also met with The Blue Room and held a video conference with Ochre Dance Company. Next January, we welcome back a new group of WAAPA students to join ITI in a term of Noh theatre training.

Welcome on board, Suntec

A special issue of Journal of Theatre, Dance and Performance Training on “intercultural acting and actor/performer training” (Vol.7, Issue 3) was guest edited by faculty member Phillip Zarrilli, ITI Director T.
