Studies in Mas & Carnival Performance with Institute Director, Makeda Thomas ​ "Studies in Mas & Carnival Performance" offers critical inquiry and embodied research around mas and Carnival - the ways in which dance and movement practice is informed by Carnival praxis, how mas aesthetics and methodologies are present in the lives of Caribbean diasporic people, how spaces of queer performance in Carnival create possibilities in dance theater, and how the relationship between Carnival and diasporic identities define Caribbean diasporic movement in our increasingly virtual realities. We ask: How does Carnival and mas performance allow us to rethink our shared potential as dance artists? How are practices of resistance expressed through dance in Carnival and mas performance? How can mas and Carnival performance practice be specified, activated, and organized to invoke its inherence as a form of Emancipation through shifting cultural and ecological landscapes? Invited guests have included Marvin George, Dr. Lyndon Gill, Dr. Cathy Thomas, Dr. Adanna Jones, and Dr. Emily Zoebel-Marshall. ​ 3 NEW ONLINE SESSIONS: THURSDAY, 22 FEBRUARY, THURSDAY, 29 FEBRUARY; THURSDAY, 7 MARCH 2024. 6PM-8PM AST.
