To make this journal worth reading is the work of many hands and heads around the globe. It requires all the expertise that we as a community of Asian Theatre practitioners and scholars can muster—the years that you, as readers-doers-authors, have spent studying Asian dance, music, movement, text, puppets, language, costumes, staging—they are here. So is expertise you have developed in understanding a culture (your own or someone else’s), the many months you have spent in the archives, the long hours you have watched performances in halls, houses, fields, and temples. This journal is a living community of scholars and artists responding via reporting on arts practice to a changing world.
