Pays rêvé, France, Jihane Chouaib, 2011, 85 min., in French

How can one return home when everything has changed, when one has spent his life elsewhere, when one has become “another”? Lebanese from abroad, children of war, four artists share a quest, that of the “dreamed country” “Nada Chouaib, Patric Chiha and Katia Jarjoura survey Lebanon; Wajdi Mouawad decides to stay outside, letting his words chart the way. An inner adventure through memories, fantasies and emotions. To try to get back to us from what built us. And conquer the freedom to reinvent our identities.

Thomas F. DeFrantz, Chair of African and African American Studies and Professor of Dance and Theater Studies at Duke University

This talk explores the ways that dance in the museum shifts across generations of theatrical dance practice to land, uneasily, in concert with the Curator’s craft. We will consider the embodied assumptions that surround the designations of dance across historical eras, and the ways in which these types of dance exceed or conform to possibilities of museum spaces. We will wonder at the gulf between the capacious physicality of dance practice, and the cultural capital afforded to museums that inevitably encourages choreographers to work in these rarefied sites. 

 In partnership with SLIPPAGE: Performance|Culture|Technology, Duke University, and the University of Toronto, Concordia University presents, in association with DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art
