Mission Statement


The ICTM Study Group on Performing Arts of Southeast Asia is dedicated to the study and research of music, dance and theater as found throughout Southeast Asia, and includes Southeast Asian performing arts that are found elsewhere in the world.  The Study Group intends to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, new approaches and current research among established as well as young ICTM scholars around the world.  The Study Group will also strive to increase communication and interaction among scholars working in Southeast Asian performing arts, and to promote future research initiatives in areas of Southeast Asia where there has been little or no research.
