Riassunto: This is a collection of essays written by scholars and professionals on the field of Dance and African American Studies covering four major areas of the disciplines. It provides historical, philosophical and aesthetic information on the subject matter drawing from the African continent and the African Diaspora.
Dal retro di copertina: This book is a compilation of essays by distinguished writers, critics, and artists in the field of Dance and African American Studies who address several areas and disciplines of African dance both on the continent and in the diaspora. Sir Rex Nettleford, the distinguished Jamaican choreographer, professor and writer, stresses in the foreword to the book, the continuity between all dances that derive from Africa and the significance of this book. African dance, he argues, is a dominant, pervasive and empowering force in African communities.
The four areas covered in the book are tradition, tradition and continuity, tradition transformed, and tradition contextualized. African, Brazilian, Caribbean and African American scholars each focus on some aspect of African dance which provide the patterns that connect. "African Dance" is text and, as such, it is a document that can be used for historical, philosophical and aesthetic information. Besides Sir Rex Nettleford, other contributors to this book include Pearl Primus, Mawere Opoku, Katrina Hazzard-Gordon, Myriam Evelyse Mariani, Cynthia S'thembile West and Omofolabo Soyinka Ajayi.
