I’m studying for my History class and need an explanation.
In two paragraphs Choose two artists and their work in this module and discuss the following:
- Artist #1: Discuss what you observe about thepresentation of the body through dance in relation to one of the theories discussed in this course (“othering” “cultural appropriation,” “hybridity” “fusion,” “appropriation,” “primitivism,” and “objectification,” “gaze theory” or “gender representation/performance”). Be sure include discussion on specific choreography found in in this module, and descriptions of the movement citing timestamps.
- Artist #2 Discuss how popular culture has influenced thematic content. For example, you may choose to discuss Jack Cole’s Jazz choreography in Kismet in relation to “orientalism,” and how during the golden era and into the 1950’s, the fascination with “exotic cultures” influenced the thematic content and costume choices, etc. Be sure include discussion on specific choreography found in in this module, and descriptions of the movement citing timestamps.
Remember that strong posts connect ideas, draw from the readings and videos (specifically the ones provided in this course) and give specific movement examples to support observations!
