Hawaiian Hula `Olapa: Stylized Embodiment, Percussion, and Chanted Oral Poetry (Paperback)

£42.50

Synopsis

Monika Lilleike's performance analytic study on Hawaiian Hula Olapa reveals how this genuine performing art practice shapes and transmits oral history via a distinct set of performative means of framing and stylisation. The intermedial confluence of performance elements, sound, body and words instills an oscillating effect of multisensory experience which echoes a deep rooted sense concerned with place, distinct environmental features, and storyline. The study appeals to discussions on intermediality, metaphoricity, and to an anthropology of the senses. It outlines practice as research and embodied knowledge as tools to conduct performance analysis.
