About AAP

The Association for Asian Performance is an international organization of scholars and artists interested in the theatre and theatrical performance traditions of Asian regions.

The AAP holds an annual conference which includes academic discussions, performances, and workshops.  The AAP also publishes Asian Theatre Journal, the premier scholarly publication for the study of theatrical performance in Asia.

The AAP web site provides AAP announcements, conference information, and other news of interest, including calls for papers and information about performances of interest.

We welcome new scholars, artists, and others.  AAP membership includes a subscription to Asian Theatre Journal and the AAP Newsletter.

AAP began as a focus group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education, and its annual conference still coincides with ATHE conferences in the late summer.  AAP is now its own, incorporated, non-profit group.
