Eastern and Western Synergies and Imaginations: Texts and Histories is a product of east-west studies crossed with adaptation studies: it goes beyond evaluation of cultural interactions and discussion of forms and manners of adaptation. This volume brings together critical discourses from various cultural locales which have developed from and thrived on the notion of “East meets West” or “West meets East”. The 10 chapters trace and investigate cross-, trans- or multi-cultural interpretations of fictional and non-fictional narratives that feature people and events in cities and regions which thrive, or have thrived, as East-West hubs, thereby expounding multiple layers of relationship between source texts and new texts. An allegorical play, The Three Ladies of Macao, premièred in December 2016, is now published as appendix in this volume.

Abstract

The Three Ladies of Macao (3LM), premièred in December 2016, is a re-write of Robert Wilson’s The Three Ladies of London (ca.1583), an Elizabethan allegorical play. Through a narrative annotation of the process of creation of 3LM, this chapter explores the cultural and socio-historical viability of re-creating an Elizabethan city play in a unique context of a Portuguese Macao in the 1960s. Key issues discussed include ways of re-creating the soundscape of the city and ways of re-contextualizing societal problems such as pandering, eviction, loan sharking and murder. The script of 3LM is included as an appendix in this volume.
