5. Summary:
This paper attempted to elaborate on the historical role of female theater staff throughout the process of theater development and transformation in Taiwan. Past researches on gender studies were mainly script or performance text based, but the gender differences in actual theater work was neglected. Therefore, this paper sought the connection between gender and various theater works. With the “Experimental Theater” organized by the National Theater & Concert Hall as the subject, the time scope was from the first holding in 1988 to 2018, and the analysis consisted of three time periods: “National Theater Experimental Theater” (1988-1995), “Boundless Sea and Sky Experimental Theater” (2002), and “New Ideas Theater” (2018).
Keywords: Experimental Theater, Female Theater Workers, Female Issues, Gender Occupational Segregation
6. Introduction:
In terms of research method, this paper quantified the lists of relevant staff and performers taking part in each drama production, which were supplemented by statistics and interviews to further examine the proportion of female theater workers during the process and whether the females were particularly concentrated in certain jobs. Perhaps, following the establishments of university and college art departments one after another, more theater workers have received training, which allows the gender composition in theaters to has a different look. In that case, has the work assignment become fairer and more competency-oriented? Or has women’s status not been promoted despite increasing job opportunities of entering a theater; they remain part of the secondary labor force?
7. Results and Discussion:
This study adopted 30-year experimental theater data of National Theater & Concert Hall to perform long-term research on the trend of women’s work in theaters, and explored the gender employment distribution and differences. The research findings show: 1. Directors are mainly male, and the gender ratio in screenwriters is equal; 2. Women involved in stage and lighting designs have increased significantly; 3. The establishments of colleges and universities have provided women with greater opportunities for gender equality.
