Abstract:

This major research paper investigates “dis/placement” as an aesthetic strategy and probes into how it intersects with race, memory, and trauma. The text problematizes the position of racialized, displaced subjects through the perspective of those who deal with this experience continuously – including myself. The case-studies, Okwui Okpokwasili and Kettly Noël, use a variety of methods to reflect their experience of displacement: from autobiography, narrative, and memoir to utilizing their body and identity in explicit ways. They benefit from an emerging artistic genre that I call “choreo-performance”; a kinetic medium that combines choreography and performance to engage audiences affectively and empathetically.
