About This Book

Dancing Bahia is an edited collection that draws together the work of leading scholars, artists, and dance activists from Brazil, Canada, and the United States to examine the particular ways in which dance has responded to socio-political notions of race and community, resisting stereotypes, and redefining African Diaspora and Afro-Brazilian traditions.Using the Brazilian city of Salvador da Bahia as its focal point, this volume brings to the fore questions of citizenship, human rights, and community building. The essays within are informed by both theory and practice, as well as black activism that inspires and grounds the research, teaching, and creative output of dance professionals from, or deeply connected to, Bahia.Table of ContentsList of IllustrationsForewordAcknowledgmentsIntroductionPart I: Bahian Dance in ActionChapter 1: Afro-Brazilian Dance as Black ActivismAmélia ConradoChapter 2: Dance Artistry and Bahian Forms of Citizenship: Isaura Oliveira and MalinkéYvonne DanielPart II: Memory, Resistance, and Survival through Dance EducationChapter 3: Pedagogies of the Body within African Matrix Education of Salvador, Brazil: Perspectives and Challenges of an Emancipatory ProjectPilar Echeverry ZambranoChapter 4: African Matrix Dance: Repertoire Options for Approaching Race and Ethnic Relations in Brazilian SchoolsPiedade Lino VideiraChapter 5: After-School Samba: Cultural Memory and Ownership in the Wake of UNESCO Recognition as Intangible Heritage of HumanityDanielle Robinson and Jeff PackmanPart III: Reflections: Paths of Courage and ConnectionsChapter 6: Why Not Me?
