The contributing papers are about women musicians during the 2018 revolution in Sudan, the ambiguous role of social commentary in Lao contemporary dance, the relevance of hip hop in Myanmar refugee camps in Thailand, the reworking of gender by women hip hop artists in Vietnam and an interview with the artist Prumsodun Ok about labels and social boundaries in relation to Khmer classical dance.
