Toni Shapiro-Phim: Dance and the Seeking of Justice

Mānoa Campus, Mission Memorial Auditorium Add to Calendar

A Presentation and Discussion with Scholar Toni Shapiro-Phim: In situations (or in the aftermath) of mass violence, cultural disruption, and/or other kinds of oppression, dance forms, and the practice of dancing itself, can take on special meaning. In this presentation, we will explore how communities and individuals — in Chile, Japan, Cambodia, and elsewhere — have imagined and created ways to constructively transform dynamics of power, and confronting and countering injustice and rights violations through dance and other modes of expression that carry deep cultural resonance.
