Nora Amin will follow the works presented during the Kuyum Dance Platform, reflecting on them and formulating a discourse that incorporates the different styles and approaches to a new perspective of diasporic African dance, a perspective that emerges from a practice-based experience and not from an elitist and Eurocentric vision. In her closing keynote, Nora Amin will seek to expand the artistic works presented into a critical discourse that aims to decolonize the perception of so-called folkloric dance, as well as question the categorization and labeling of dance in general, and how it prolongs a history of discrimination and white supremacy.
