Working with a performance paradigm, a post-colonial methodology and a focus on performance practices developed between the continents of Africa, the Caribbean and Europe; this research investigates the position of African and Caribbean diasporic dance practices within Scotland’s diverse cultural heritage. Developed in collaboration with Choreographer Erick Mauricia Valentin, this research employed practical methods of embodied knowledge such as re-imagining, re-presentation and performance, working with both traditional and contemporary African and Caribbean diasporic dance techniques to articulate the diasporic experience and its transformational circumstance within contemporary Scottish culture.
