Concepts of Performance in Africa—MUSI 4090—Spring 2023
Thu. Jan 19, 2023 - Thu. Apr 27, 2023 (15 weeks)
Every Thursday from 12:01 PM to 12:01 PM
Through discussion, reading, writing, viewing/listening, we explore African performance theory associated especially with Ewe (Ghana) and BaAka (Central African rainforest) music/dance we are learning to perform, experimenting with abstracting concepts and remaking them in the immediate context of the course. No experience required, but dedication to an interactive, interdependent intellectual and creative community is expected from each student.
Lab required, seminar required
