2016 Barcelona Symposium

Yeats & Asia: Imagining Asia through Yeats, Imagining Yeats through Asia

June 1: The CFP is now closed. The scientific committee is completing its evaluation of the proposals and will soon send out its responses. Late proposals will still be considered on a case by case basis.

Registration is now open. Attendees must be IYS Members to register. The registration page will only appear on the website when members have logged in using their user id. More information is available here.

We are excited to announce that the Yeats & Asia Symposium will include a screening of a documentary about the production of The Cat and the Moon that the Blue Raincoat theatre company will put on in Sligo this summer, with interviews and scenes from rehearsals as well as the play itself. The director of the production, Niall Henry, will be at the symposium to present the documentary. Also attending is Kaoru Matsumoto, director for the Shigeyama family in Kyoto, one of the two traditional kyogen theatre companies in Japan, and recognised as a "national treasure" by the Japanese government. His theatre company have performed a Japanese version of the Yeats play, itself based on the translation of a kyogen classic.
