          About This Event

          Summary

          Encountering Religions Through Performance

          Chanting the Qur’an, tending to deities, dancing to drums, singing spirituals: people experience their religions through many kinds of performance. Performance also provides ways to encounter others’ religions, often serving as an initial introduction to traditions from different communities and cultures. Urban settings include a multiplicity of religious “performances” and a breadth of religious practice. The 26th Joseph T. Taylor Symposium will explore Indianapolis’s religious diversity and provide attendees opportunities to witness and discuss religion’s performative aspects.

          Luncheon Performance and Discussion: Sancocho Music and Dance Collage

          Sancocho is a musical group dedicated to researching and performing African-derived music and dance from Spanish-speaking cultures of the Caribbean. (The term “Sancocho” comes from the name of a stew in Latin America that combines meats, vegetables and spices to create a unique taste.) Sancocho uses various percussion instruments to underscore the strong African retentions found in the black diaspora. The term “edutainment” best describes the group in that the main audiences are children, universities, and public festivals. Iris Rosa and Anthony Artis founded the ensemble in 1995.

          Luncheon seating is limited and requires registration and pre-payment. Morning sessions are free.

          The Joseph Taylor Symposium

          The Joseph T. Taylor Symposium honors Dr. Taylor for his many contributions to the university and to the community by hosting informed discussion on issues of interest in urban America, particularly among communities of color. The Joseph T. Taylor Symposium is offered in celebration of all Dr. Taylor stood for during his lifetime and stands as a lasting legacy to his vision and life work.

          Hosted by the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI Office of Development and External Affairs and the Department of Religious Studies
