Abstract

Participants will incorporate communicative gestural, postural and locomotor responses to sources outside the quotidian Western canon into their own repertoires, exploring their use in interfaith worship. We will learn an introit processional set to Islamic chant, African American and Hispanic congregational gestured prayers, and dances set to bilingual hymns. A more theoretical discussion of goals, methods, and strategies for encouraging bilingual education and respectful transcultural sharing processes in faith communities will close the session.
