After our introduction episode 00, we start moving now into specific individual topics and look into the multiplicity of identitieS. This episode dives into the realm of street dance and takes it as a framework to investigate the connection between body and music and reflect on its importance when talking about identity.
Beyond the technical sides of street dances this connection between body and music can indeed strongly impact who we are: on one hand, they can unfold into situations of togetherness and collective moments, shaping the perception of you and the others. At the same time, it can function as a tool to explore all the facets of who you are: deepening the already existing ones but also discovering others. After delving into house dance as a case study, a discussion on music body and sounds will follow in a second moment.
The author of this episode is Stefano Martelli, a Swiss Italian architecture student at ETHZ Zürich and dancer in the free time. Joining the conversation is Louis Lüthard, a young dancer from Freiburg attending the education program as stage dancer at Tanzwerk 101 in Zürich and member of Colour Jam crew.
All of this, within a sonic journey. Enjoy listening!
