How do dance, performance, and music pass down history, memory and tradition differently than texts?
What can dance and music communicate that written forms of history can’t – and how can we become “legible” in those modes of expression? For this pre-show tea, our Scholar-in-Residence Matthew Sergi will give a brief overview of dabke, the dance form on which Badke is based, and then lead an open-ended discussion about what might happen when folk performance leaps outside of its local social contexts.
Badke – Pre-show Tea, Wednesday, February 17, 2016 – 7pm
Admission is free with the purchase of a ticket to the opening performance of Badke .
