Recent advancements in technology and media are altering our culture in profound ways, blurring the line between recorded, reproducible art and live performance, and between commercial entertainment and fine art. Over a two-part discussion, prominent players in the arts and technology fields discuss these shifting paradigms and their effects on their industries. In a keynote dialogue, Academy Award-nominated film director and director of Broadway’s The Lion King Julie Taymor, whose artistic career has spanned experimental puppet theater to the grand opera, and famed musical theater and opera director Amon Miyamoto share how the changing climate in our high-tech environment is shaping not only their careers but also their artistic intentions and relationship to their audiences. In the second forum, video game designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi, Toshio Tsuchiya, the Executive Director of the Internet Division of Nippon Television, and Satoshi Endo, Chief Contents Officer of ASCII, discuss the evolution of their business models in an age where the variety of media interfaces is multiplying exponentially at a rapid pace. Co-organized by Asahi Shimbun and Japan Society.

Tickets: This event is free and open to the public. General admission registration is through Asahi Shimbun. For additional information, please contact Ryohei Yamamoto at (212) 715-1229 or [email protected].
