Art of Exile: Micropolitics, Aesthetics and Staged Authenticities of Tai Dance

April 23, 2:00pm - 3:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Tokioka Room, Moore Hall 319

Dance, song and movement aesthetics are often overlooked in studies of war, religion and diaspora. Yet synchronized rhythmic movement promotes group coherence within all cultures, religions and nations, and holds potential for expressing political resistance. Based on ethnographic fieldwork in Northern Thailand amongst Tai migrants from the Shan State in Burma/Myanmar, this talk attends to the micropolitics and staged authenticities of Tai dance (Fon Tai).

Speaker: Tani H. Sebro, PhD Cand., Department of Political Science, UHM
