Item description for Krishen Jit: An Uncommon Position, Selected Writings by Kathy Roland...
Krishen Jit was one of the most influential figures in the arts in Southeast Asia. He had distinguished himself as a director, dramaturg, critic, academic, arts advocate, educationist, historian and regional power broker in a career that spans over 40 years. As a critic and scholar, he has defied the boundaries of language and genre, making his body of writings an indispensable resource in the structuring and historicizing of arts practice in Malaysia. Krishen's critical studies have appeared in "The Asian Theatre Journal", "Dewan Sastera", "The New Sunday Times", "Far Eastern Economic Review" and "The Cambridge Guide to World Theatre" among other publications. This book features a selection of Krishen's essays and articles written from the early 1970s to date, covering theatre, dance and visual art. Articles include an analysis of contemporary theatre in Southeast Asia, the polemics of religion and art in Malaysia, the dynamics of multiculturalism in performance and the artist's role as a public intellectual. This collection is a must for anyone seeking an insider's perspective on the arts in Southeast Asia.
