Symposium Topics

Hybridity in dance is transmitted in diverse ways both locally and globally: in formal and informal sessions specifically intended to teach participants how to perform dance, as a way of reconstructing the past, and in tourist settings to showcase a cultural manifestation to tourists from nearby or far away places. The presentations around this theme will address such issues as:

A. Researching Hybridity in Dance

• How is hybridity performed and transmitted, and has transmission processes changed over time?

• Hybridity as a commodity: How can “traditional” or contemporary hybrid dance forms be appropriately presented as an economic commodity?

• How is “hybridization” constructed, by whom, and for what purpose?

• How is authenticity constructed through hybridization?

B. Performing Hybridity

• What is transmitted when dance is presented as hybridized forms?

• How do administrative and entrepreneurial enterprises and assumed expectations have an impact on the presentation of hybrid dance forms?

• What happens to indigenous concepts of dance when dance is presented as hybrids?

• When presenting hybridity, what kinds of negotiation, appropriation, and representation occur?

C. Writing Old and New Hybrid Genres

• How are old and new hybrid genres written for local and transnational sharing of knowledge?

• Are there similarities or differences between presenting hybridity to local as opposed to foreign readers?

• What is the role of intellectual property rights and copyright in the presentation of hybrid dance genres in dance writing and in the teaching of dance?
