Lecture: ‘Marina Carr’s’ “By the Bog of Cats”: Using the practice of theatre to create intercultural dialogues – my experience with practice-based projects in China.
Sarahjane Scaife
By the Bog of Cats is a powerful play loosely based on the myth of Medea, but set in the boglands of Ireland. It deals with themes of motherhood, nationhood, family and the land. This play was translated into Mandarin by Professor Li Yuan during a residency at the Beijing Foreign Studies University funded by the Irish Literary Exchange programme.
Lecture: Fight the Landlord, Pan Pan @ Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre and Irish Pavilion.
Aedin Cosgrove, Pan Pan Theatre.
Fight the Landlord (Dou Di Zhu) was the brainchild of Pan Pan’s artistic directors Gavin Quinn and Aedín Cosgrove, along with Chinese writer and performer Sun Yue who previously wrote the Chinese version of J.M. Synge’s “The Playboy of the Western World” for Pan Pan theatre. Dou Di Zhu (Fight the Landlord) is the most popular card game in China. It is a form of Bridge or Poker. A lecture on the experience of this play in China inspired by the game will be given by Aedin Cosgrove.
