Slaves would join together and
dress up and imitate and make fun of the master. Whoever did the cake
walk dance the best would win a cake. It was done in 2:4 time signature
and was done in a fast march or slow durge.
What is the difference between African American Tradition and Afro Caribbean (be sure to know this difference)?
African American tradition has
classical music and the tradition came about as African people were
experiencing living in America. Africans created culture in America.
There were plantations and slavery in the Caribbean and that's how
Africans were brought (by slave ships). Africans created culture in the
Caribbean. Caribbean is a group of islands (things developed differently
because there's no outside influence).
Irish slave owners punished the
slaves and slaves would learn tap dance. Also, tap dance got created
because downtown was the stock market and slaves were being sold here
and cultural things like tap dancing were being exchanged here.
What is the willing sense of disbelief and give an example?
When we go to the theatre to
watch a musical, we're going to accept things that we may not expect.
Hollywood blockbusters (like Transformers) can make it look so visually
beautiful and realistic so you won't need "the willing sense."
Fosse deconstructed musicals.
Fosse didn't want you to believe in the musicals. Fosse focused on the
music and dancing. He created the musical "Chicago" and it was based on
the 20s-30s, but it still gives you the same timeless effect (because it
looks like it was still relevant to 2013).
