Message ■ Contemporary theater around the world
Vol.1 “Untold story of Islamic culture and theater in Pakistan”
Pakistan, along with India, became independent from British rule in 1947. Muslims account for 98% of the total population.Although there is a censorship system for depictions of theatrical customs, except under military rule, as an Islamic nation, relatively free activities have been permitted.In this lecture, I will introduce the activities of "parallel theater" represented by the Ajoker Theater, which has a social influence in the theater that is currently seen in Pakistan.I would also like to introduce traditional stage performances that form the basis of parallel theater.

Vol.2 "The World of Robert Lepage's Work and Its Charms"
Robert Lepage is a director and actor who has been active on the front lines of the world since the 1980s.While taking up some of his most representative works, it develops without losing the visuality that is characteristic of the skillful use of video and stage equipment, the multiplicity and transversality of language, culture, and media, and the sense of playfulness. I would like to approach the source of the charm of Robert Lepage's works through several keywords such as meta-theater-like thinking, collective creation and work-in-progress methods, and the Quebec character that underlies them. .

Vol.3 “Touching African Theater: The World of Wole Soyinka”
Wole Soyinka (1934-) is a Nigerian writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986, becoming the first African to receive it.Many of Soyinka's theatrical works have been highly acclaimed not only in Nigeria and Africa, but also internationally.This lecture will focus on "The Madman and the Expert" (12), which is scheduled to give a leading lecture at the upcoming ITI-sponsored "Theater Born in Conflict Areas 1970" in December. 1975), as well as his own artistic theory and various activities, we will give an overview of a cross-section of contemporary African theater.
