Dancing Dissent

Episode 11,  Sep 01, 2020, 01:00 PM

Ballet appears to have a very well studied and rigid history. But what happens when you dig a little deeper into its less well-known past?
What can ballet tell us about Peruvian emperors and french colonizers?

Today, Professor Kevin Lewis O'Neill is joined by Professor VK Preston, from the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto.

In this episode, we will discuss how the history of French ballet allows us to explore themes of appropriation, extraction, political dissent, and indigenous ideologies of third gender.
