The Cape Routine: Ontological Resistance in a Tradition of Black Performance
Mentor: Dr. Fei Shi
How can the metaphysics of modernity undergo radical reimagining? By addressing this question through the fields of Black Radical Aesthetics, and Afrofuturism, I aim to elaborate on how this reimagining becomes propagated through performance which refuses to adhere to modernity’s imposition of a principle of totality and moreover, the totality of the subject. Working through the Cape Routine, a particularly dynamic tradition of black performance, I will exemplify and articulate the movement of this resistance. Thus, I hope to promote the stakes of this discourse in disrupting the systems which support the exclusionary violence of racism and similar forces.
