Sudiipta Dowsett
Saturday 9:00
Sudiipta is currently working as a Research Associate at the University of New South Wales on the Australia Research Council Linkage project Indigenous Futurity: Milpirri as Experimental Ceremony – a collaborative project between the National Institute for Experimental Art (NIEA), Tracks Dance Company and Lajamanu Warlpiri community. Her broader research focuses on how locality, history, culture, politics and lived experience shape the aesthetics of embodied collective performance practices. More specifically, she is interested in how hip-hop functions as a decolonial practice in South Africa and Australia. Her work explores how artists utilise hip-hop to make sense of complex neocolonial contexts, revitalise language and culture, and embody and embed Ancestral art forms within the contemporary global performance culture of hip-hop by active forms of cultural (re)production, remixing, asserting and claiming place in the world.
