What are the politics of dance? How does that compare to the politics of music?
I imagine some people will think, ‘What? Dance isn’t political.’ But maybe if you think a little more, you might start to see political aspects of dance. It’s pretty easy if you look at the history of dance. But see if you can figure it out yourself.
In what ways do people seek to express power through dance? How does dance help people express power? Are people even aware of what they are doing? Maybe if you compare it to music, it might be easier to see these things.
I think there are probably a myriad of ways that the arts are used to express power. I just wonder what I can learn from my fellow jellies about how they see it. Stories of specific instances where you have been influenced to take action within the community via dance or music would be very helpful. Also, if you want to define how you understand these terms, that would be good, although not fully necessary.
