The (Black) Dancing Body as a Matter of Culture
Through dance demonstrations and visual images, Dixon Gottschild examines the pervasive Africanist presence in American culture and the sociopolitical implications of its invisibility. With dance as the focus and race the parameter, she reveals Africanisms in modern and postmodern dance and American ballet.
Brenda Dixon Gottschild is a cultural historian, actress, and dancer.
