Abstract

Dancehall, a popular dance style originating from downtown Kingston Jamaica, now circulates across transnational spaces through digital media and postcolonial consumption systems. This presentation will study dancehall in the twenty-first century as an information age space for transcultural production, with a focus on female participation. It will interrogate the authoritative role of the video camera in the scene, and the impact that the use of screens has on the practitioners' cultural, phenomenological and economic experience. The discussion will analyse the engagement of diversely situated females in relation to questions of mobility, visibility and power.
