The glocalization of dance: Studying performative practices in transnational contexts

Dance has been studied as a modern global-local phenomenon, which, from a cultural practice at a local, regional and national scale, has become part of transnational cultural flows and systems as well as political, economic and social networks. Various dance genres, and the institutions and people, who participate in, perform and attend them, are transformed into identity practices of immigrant groups, incorporated into an international, commercialized art market and become the object of decolonization in the context of a post-colonial critique.

New forms of dance performance are produced and constructed and re-integrated in local and national contexts as discourses and practices about culture. Consequently, they attribute new meanings to embodied experiences and aesthetic values and re-structure the relationship between the local and the global.

This session discusses the various meanings of dance practice and its kinesthetic and performative expression in multiple trans-local, trans-national and internationalized socio-cultural contexts. Drawing on contemporary theoretical and methodological approaches, it explores diverse contexts of social action (i.e. migration, transnationalism), the construction of boundaries, practices of power and dominance, and embodied experiences of subjectivity.
