J-PEST (Japanese Performance Electronic Salon Talk) is an online research group of Japanese and foreign scholars begun in May 2020 to discuss the effects of the Covid crisis on Japanese and global performance.The J-Theatre Pandeminar Series is a weekly series of conversations among performance specialists and Japanese producers, performers, and teachers exploring how Japanese theatre has coped with the spread of Covid -19 since March 2020. We will be:

1.     examining historical precedents and contexts for the present crises .
2.     interrogating theatre producers, performers, and teachers about their varied strategic and accidental methods born of necessity over two years.
3.     seeking themes emerging from new playwrights and festival programming.
4.     examining how spectatorship changes when “live theatre” becomes not merely a luxury, but a scarcity?
5.     predicting which mediated ways of teaching and performing will continue beyond the pandemic.
