Japan’s World Showcase by Trevor Aydelotte

The Zahouli.
Postcard, United States of America.

The Ivory Coast Group, appearing at the Africa Pavilion, perform The Zahouli — a mask dance with subtle snake theme (which can be viewed by native women). The masked male dancer mimics the bride arriving at her conjugal abode as well as the proud bridegroom, tails in hand, escorted by his friends to his new home.

Peak white privilege: an American history professor criticises my play, which is set in 18th Century China, for not mentioning America.

Bruce Chadwick writes:

There are not enough plays about Chinese history. We need more. This one, as an example, tells you a lot about family life and the deplorable positions of women in China who are not concubines or royals. They have no rights at all in an era where, particularly in the United States and England, feminism was starting to thrive…

It was during this time, too, that America began to trade with China. Following the American Revolution, the U.S. made Samuel Shaw, a retired Continental Army officer, its first China Consul. He arrived in China in 1784, set up offices and began to participate in trade with China, mainly involving China’s vast tea production. Some more of this story should have been told in the play.

Just to be clear, the play was an adaptation of Cao Xueqin’s Dream of the Red Chamber / Hong Lou Meng / 红楼梦, one of the four great classic novels of China.
