About this product
- DescriptionIle Aiye's unifying identity politics through Afro-Carnival performance, is embedded in its dialectical relationship with the rest of Brazil as it takes ownership of its oppressed status by striving for racial equality and ecomic empowerment. Against this complex background, performative theory offers significant new meanings. In ritualistically integrating Bakhtinian categories of free interaction, eccentric behavior, carnivalistic misalliances, and the sacrilegious, Ile Aiye anchors its social discourse on showcasing the black race as a critical agency of beauty, pride, wisdom, subversion, and negotiation. Ile Aiye carnival is t only racially conscious, it heightens the conflicts by dislocating the very establishment that invests in its cultural politics. In fusing the sacred, the profane, the performative, the musical, with the political, Ile Aiye succeeds in indicting racism, ironically sacrificing the very power it pursues. Despite these limitations, Ile Aiye creatively engages alternative dialogues on Brazilian politics through sponsored performances across transnational borders.
