Rina Angela Corpus to Hold Book Reading in New York
TOPAZ ARTS welcomes guest artist Rina Angela Corpus who will talk about her book, “Defiant Daughters Dancing: Three Independent Women Dance,” (UP Press) which won her..
Corpus’ book navigates the histories of three contemporary Filipina choreographers – Myra Beltran, Kristin Jackson, Agnes Locsin – who have bravely produced themselves as independent dance-makers. Using feminist prisms in looking at women’s history in the dance world, the book lays down concrete questions and practical methodologies for mapping out a dance historiography that is informed by self-reflexivity and feminist consciousness. Straddling the discourses of art and dance history, feminist criticism, theory and aesthetics, this book is a first of its kind in Philippine dance scholarship that contemplates the depth and breadth of feminist thought within the study of Philippine contemporary dance.
Author Rina Angela Corpus will be joined by choreographer Kristin Jackson and Marie Alonzo- Snyder, PhD, Filipina-American dancer and dance educator, to offer commentary after the talk. The book will be available at the reading.
