This paper is a reflection on my participation in one international research project of viewing Asia by Asian scholars. It will include accounts of the complexity and fascination of one Indonesian researcher when examining popular theatres in Sri Lanka. The underlying assumption is that Asian people have rich and diverse forms of cultural heritage that can provide resources for cultivating a culture of peace. However, despite the similar history and geopolitics between Indonesia and Sri Lanka, the task was not made any easier, given, first, the politico-economic implications and, second, psychosocial repercussion of the project. This paper argues that both factors as well as the researcher‟s own cultural baggage need to be attuned to the contextual condition in order to address adequately issues of war, reconciliation, and ethnicity that this lived experience research seeks to explore.
