Contemporary African Dance Theatre

by Sabine Sörgel, Contemporary African Dance Theatre Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Contemporary African Dance Theatre books, This book is the first to consider contemporary African dance theatre aesthetics in the context of phenomenology, whiteness, and the gaze. Rather than a discussion of African dance per se, the author challenges hegemonic perceptions of contemporary African dance theatre to interrogate the extent to which white supremacy and privilege weave through capitalist necropolitics and determine our perception of contemporary African dance theatre today. Multiple aesthetic strategies are discussed throughout the book to account for the affective experience of ‘un-suturing’ that touches white spectatorship and colonial guilt at their core. The critical analysis covers a broad range of dance choreography by artists from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Canada, Europe, and the US as they travel, create, and show their works internationally to global audiences to contest racial divides and white supremacist politics.

Choreographies Of African Identities

by Francesca Castaldi, Choreographies Of African Identities Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Choreographies Of African Identities books, Choreographies of African Identities traces interconnected interpretative frameworks around and about the National Ballet of Senegal. Using the metaphor of a dancing circle Castaldi's arguments cover the full spectrum of performance, from production to circulation and reception. Castaldi first situates the reader in a North American theater, focusing on the relationship between dancers and audiences as that between black performers and white spectators. She then examines the work of the National Ballet in relation to Léopold Sédar Senghor's Négritude ideology and cultural politics. Finally, the author addresses the circulation of dances in the streets, discotheques, and courtyards of Dakar, drawing attention to women dancers' occupation of the urban landscape.

Umfundalai

by Kariamu Welsh-Asante, Umfundalai Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Umfundalai books, Umfundalai, a Kiswahili word meaning "essence" or "essential", is now also the name of an innovative dance technique discovered and developed by the author of this book to enable anyone to perform traditional African dances. In 1970-71, as an eager young student, the author set about organizing the complex multiplicity of rhythms and movements displayed in the various traditional dances still practiced in rural villages throughout the continent of Africa. In the process, she isolated the elements essential to all African dances: the circle (the earliest form of dance, symbol of the unified whole); repetition (a necessary extension of rhythm); rattling and ululation (natural accompaniments of rhythm). She also discovered their wider, social and political symbolism; the unique power inherent in rhythm; the responsibilities inherent in leadership and control; and the political and moral standards inherent in human society. Then, after a crucial, challenging encounter with a master teacher of dance, she delved deeply into the histories, the arts, and the philosophies of successive African civilizations-Pharaonic, Sudanese, Colonial, Diasporic, Post-Colonial, Pre-Independent, and Independent. Now, from the crucible of time and one woman's personal voyage of discovery, there has emerged not only a fresh and vibrant vehicle for the self-expression of a people, but also a powerful political and moral instrument of immense contemporary impact. Umfundalai not only mirrors the rich and variegated African dance aesthetic...it not only incarnates a wealth of African history, philosophy, and art...it actually serves and empowers the dancer, the artist, and the audience by invoking the communal powerof African dance to stimulate political and social action. More than a technique, Umfundalai is an organic and exhilarating series of rhythms, movements, and sounds that affirms life's passages (birth, marriage, death, rebirth, etc.), celebrates a holistic system of beliefs and values, and salutes the universal and unifying life force that is Africa's most precious resource.
