Special Issue "South Asian Diasporic Dance Artists: Choreographic Cultural Negotiations"
A special issue of Arts (ISSN 2076-0752).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2023) | Viewed by 5038
This Special Issue explores the myriad of movement practices in the South Asian diaspora, with a particular focus on experimental arts practices in what we now call the United States. Submissions are sought from those who are interested in contemplating the ramifications of movement and time-based work stemming from the conversation between South Asian and North American influences. The issue seeks submissions that engage with the primary source of the artist’s perspective over the secondary analysis of the scholar while also acknowledging the tremendous and often useful overlap between those two modes of inquiry. The diaspora, with its particular mix of experiences, can be a site to question the equating of Indian identity with an adherence to a specific set of religious practices and beliefs. Dance has frequently equated Hindu myths, representations, and codes as a definitional part of South Asian dance discourse. This volume seeks an expansion of that equation and seeks to elicit dialogue from and with the many choreographers, movement practitioners, and thinkers who are in kinetic conversations with their cultural ancestry from South Asia as well as their current states, homes, locales, cities, and/or countries.
