Series - In Plain Sight Film Series [Online]

In Senegal, traditional dance forms preserved for generations mix with modern dance influences from around the world. The interaction between tradition and globalization, catalyzed by creative young dancers, fuels an intense new cultural context for artistic expression. The Call of Dance is a raw, immersive collection of moments in modern Senegalese dance that capture the complexity of this new era of multiplicity.

Throughout the film, dancers movements embody individuality, history, emotion and aspiration, sharing everything from solitary meditations on the nuance of the everyday to the kinetics of collective experience. At the Dakar Cultural Center, in a Krump battle, by the ocean, before a wrestling contest, at a village initiation ceremony  all of life is a site for the medium of dance, and every stage contributes its own energy.

The Call of Dance is a sensory and philosophical journey through the Senegal of today. It clearly and brilliantly draws the lines that link dance to self-transcendence and cultural heritage.
