Some issues that arise include how the histories of how certain music and movements are developed, re-mixed and spread; the extent that music and movement form and become emblematic of national identity; how dance can exist as a form of resistance, of therapy, of contagion; how memory is stored in the body and released collectively; the extent that dance has political agency; and how the existence of sound and movement is intertwined with histories of trauma, oppression, while also existing as processes for joy and catharsis.
