‘Staging Sri Lankan cultural identity for the global theatre market: A Contemporary Natyashilpa’ – Tharanga Dandeniya

This practice-led research project aims to effectively represent Sri Lankan cultural identity through folk drama elements in the commercial stream theatre outside of its homeland. The researcher seeks to develop terms and a conceptual framework for Sri Lankan theatre which negotiates with other cultures in non-South Asian cultural spaces. The project will test this framework through a full-length theatre performance, and later evaluate it.
