This course explores our world, tragically divided and torn apart by walls of exclusion. How far are people free, with the right to choose where they belong and to take up the traditions of other cultures? What are the political and moral grounds dividing citizenship and statelessness? Art creates frames: the edge of the canvas, the boundaries of the performing space; but rather than restrictive, they are forms of inclusion, making communities across time and space. In dance, we identify ourselves by seeking recognition and recognizing one another. By studying such examples of intercultural exchange as hip hop, circle dance, the Dabkeh, we explore the power of dance to negotiate questions of personhood, authenticity, appropriation – transgressing and transcending, reframing the politics of identity and mobility.
