I propose an inquiry into performances (i.e. dance) dance within transnationalism as a space of transcending border and reconfiguring alignment. In this project, I try to locate performance— the embodiment of dance technique, a mastered bodily code—as a possibility of dissident feminist praxis. I aim through this presentation to engage the idea of examining local cultural disturbance and of so-called “injustice, especially with many extraction of natural sources” where the construction of marginality and representation requires [often] idea of universal. This space of transnationalism has become a competitive place, as “different” being constructed, the shared concern are limited to how language of necessity mediates and what was the one who make the concern able to cross borders, which I call the imagination of the transient border, through ritual, dance technique and performance spaces.
In this Wednesday forum, I question the idea of feminism without borders, as Chandra Talpade Mohanty suggests, made possible through artistic performances and narratives taking place within the global aesthetic. Also meditation through Marta Savigliano’s conception on the issue of “world dance.”
