Anthropology on stage

24 September, 2008

I recently learned that a small theatre in Budapest is putting on a play (according to other descriptions, and opera!) based on a short ethnographic piece I published in 2000, in a literary journal. (They seem to have treated it as “open source.”) It’s the monologue of a Chinese migrant woman — sraight from my field notes.

I remember the discussion some months ago about non-academic publications. So I guess it’s worth writing these pieces, if they manage to move people! The producer said what they liked was the way the story was everyday, and yet not. That’s what anthropology is all about, hm?
