    DA311 – Encountering Global Dance

    In this course, we will be watching dance works by a number of artists, both from the US and international contexts working with a range of forms, aesthetics, and questions. Alongside watching these works, we will be reading key theorists from social theory, dance/performance studies and postcolonial studies alongside poetry and literary texts. These offer different frameworks or sets of questions, allowing us to think through dance works as kaleidoscopes - situated and shifting in significance given our perspective. Questions will include those around narrative, realism, abstraction, space, and utopia. We will focus on the elements of bodies, time, and space. 1 unit. May meet either the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures or Social Inequality requirement.
