Exploration of World Cultural Arts

Curated by Bert Breton
The World Cultural Arts learning group examines the transformation and collaboration of different art forms. Cultural Arts embodies creative thinking and critique, which encompasses the analyses of contemporary visual culture alongside other art forms i.e. visual art, literature, music, theatre, film, dance, etc. Cultural arts help to explain the world in which we live, our worldview and often challenge current ideas, thoughts and practice. World Cultural arts are less about definition and more about meaning and making sense of our current environment through an exploration of creativity.

Hasaki Ya Suda (The Three Black Samurai)

Heavily influenced by samurai films from film makers such as Akira Kurosawa, filmaker Cédric Ido produced a short award winning film, Hasaki Ya Suda (The Three Black Samurai) set in the future. Joining the trend of films and projects that explore AfroFuturism, the film is a great exploration of the mixing of genres, culture and language. Hailing from Burkina Faso, Cedric ido is set to produce more feature films for Focus Features Africa and is set to join other reputable African film makers. Brilliant short film, indeed!

The 15th Alabama Dance Festival, which started Friday and continues through Jan. 30, reveals examples of a sweeping move toward globalization in modern dance:

A Korean choreographer sets a piece about Muhammad Ali, working with hip-hop dancers.

A Japanese artist works with an Urban Bush Women choreographer in New Orleans, along with artists from Burkina Faso and Jamaica.

Ronald Brown, director of the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based Evidence, A Dance Company, has incorporated dance from the Senegambia region of West Africa in his own choreography.

The dance scene in Alabama has grown to become very vibrant!

“Native Sun,” is a short-film, set in Ghana, that follows an imaginative young boy as he searches for his father. The movie, written and co-directed by Blitz the Ambassador, features music from his upcoming album of the same title.

It’s a brilliant visual representation of Africa, much different from the average perspective of poverty and despair. A reality of Ghana seen through the whimsical eyes of a young boy.

A sometimes over the top wow documentary on bad boy Marc Jacobs, one of the most powerful designers in the world. The documentary gives very interesting insight on Jacobs, LVMH and the fashion industry as a whole… +1 +1 +1 !!!

The Noise of Cairo, a new film documentary about the art scene in Cairo after the revolution

The film follows the interplay between art and the revolution in Egypt. Protest of any kind was punished violently in pre-revolutionary Egypt and artistic expression was considered nothing but a threat to the status quo. But since the fall of the Mubarak dictatorship, the art scene in Cairo is flourishing once again. A very inspirational film. If you’re interested in the arts and/or Africa, I think you’ll love this.

Not many people can move Lady Gaga to tears with their dancing. Marko Germar did. His talent is so powerful and passionate. Here’s a look back at how it’s done.

Music from Saharan cellphones

This is a compilation of music collected from memory cards of cellular phones in the Saharan desert. V. cool tracks to kick in the year 2012!!!

The songs chosen for the compilation highlight music that is immensely popular on the unofficial mp3/cellphone network from Abidjan to Bamako to Algiers, but have limited or no commercial release. They’re also songs that tend towards self production.

Funny spoof short film for Dior Homme directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Jude Law.

Let’s hope that for 2012 the fragrance industry advertising stops the silly dialogue, idle sexual tension and the lack of anything whatsoever. Well done Mr. Ritchie.
