Pejepscot History Center Presents: Steps in Time: Dance as Cultural Performance with June Vail 05/11/23 at 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Pejepscot History Center Presents: Steps in Time: Dance as Cultural Performance with June Vail

Steps in Time: Dance as Cultural Performance
with June Vail
Thursday, May 11 at 5:30pm, at PHC

Dancing, movement, music, expression. These things are as natural to humans as breathing. Yet within this universal activity there are thousands of varieties all over the world that have developed in conjunction with the societies and peoples who practice them.

In this generously illustrated talk, Bowdoin professor emerita June Vail takes a look at changing attitudes toward Western theatrical and social dance forms and non-Eurocentric traditions. What are some common assumptions about dance as an art form, social dance, folk dance, religious ritual, and many other forms of human movement? If we think of dances as cultural performances ? that they embody, comment on, or challenge certain social norms or aesthetic values ? does that imply that all dances are “ethnic?” And what does this mean for participants and viewers?

W?e invite you to join us as we ask these questions and more, thinking about dance in new and exciting ways as part of our 2023 focus Fine / Folk: Critiquing Our Artistic Past.

Tickets: $8 PHC Members; $12 General Admission. Admission price includes a drink and light refreshments.

ArtBar 05/11/23 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

ArtBar

ArtBar is ArtVan’s take on “Paint & Sip” workshops. At ArtVan we focus on the process of creating art rather than the final product. Each participant works on an original inspiration so at the end of the night, each artwork is unique. For a modest fee, participants are invited to paint with the guidance of ArtVan’s professional staff, similar to how we invite our program groups to express themselves. Although this is not a therapy group, it is an experience of creativity. We provide a canvas, paints, brushes, drawing materials, and any artistic support needed.

Taking place at OneSixtyFive. Cash bar available. No outside food or drinks permitted.

Registration is required, and may be done here.
