CCLAP 2014 TALK: Nguyễn Thanh Thủy – The Choreography of Gender in Traditional Vietnamese music

Leave a comment

The Choreography of Gender in Traditional Vietnamese music. My focus is the use of gesture in traditional Vietnamese music from the perspective of being a dan tranh instrumentalist with a broad and international experience. Even if my research is not literally about choreography I want to bring music and choreography together in experimental works that are developed by musicians and choreographers together. One of the aims is to investigate the social function and meaning of musical gesture in traditional Vietnamese music. Such findings have been a point of departure in the making of several experimental works in which I intentionally re-conceptualize myself and my social role as a female performer. In this talk, I would like to introduce some works from the last three years: Inside/Outside, Go To Hell, Seven Stories, Vodou, as well as briefly discuss the artistic method in these projects.
