讲座提要: In 1943, three of China’s most prominent Leftist playwrights (Xia Yan マトムワ, Song Zhidi ヒホヨョオト, and Yu Ling モレチæ) set out to collectively compose a play that would articulate the value of Chinese theatre in the midst of the War of Resistance Against Japan. Their final product was titled Annals of the Theater (XijuChunqiu 戏剧エコヌï): a semi-fictional history of the spoken drama movement. Each act re-imagines an important stage in the development of the genre including the standardization of gender-straight casting, audience riots against Nationalist censorship, and the start of the War of Resistance.

         In dramatizing the history of its own artistic field, Annals of the Theater shines a light on the untold stories of backstage laborers such as directors, stagehands, and the first generation of modern Chinese actresses. However, in narrating an unofficial history of the Chinese drama movement, the play does not recognize all participants evenly. Although the fictional actresses in Annals of the Theater speak openly about the societal bias constricting their lives, they are also overshadowed by male artists within the text itself or removed from the narrative by means of tragic deaths. Through a close reading of Annals of the Theater, this talk considers the process of canonizing modern Chinese drama from the perspective of its founders as well as other, more marginalized laborers in the theater community. In addition to dramatic texts, it analyzes standard Chinese theater histories and points toward the theoretical and archival work that remains to be done to supplement their elisions.
