OSPBER 51: Dance on the Edge in Germany

Dance and choreography can be explored in the former East German as a disciplinary and resistive tool. For this independent study course, suggested topics include: How complex themes of nationhood, ideology, resistance and diaspora resonated in uniquely East German dance forms including mass exercise events, national folk dances, Marxist-Leninist visions staged by the armed forces and East Germany's version of Tanztheatre. How dance was used as a form of corporeal utopia, embodied socialist propaganda and indoctrination. Field trips to related venues can also be included. Readings can be chosen from those that examine complex themes of nationhood, ideology, resistance, and diaspora, contrasted with a mix of archival research, critical theory and performance analysis of live dance performances.
