Beschreibung

In West Java, Indonesia, all it takes is a woman's voice and a drumbeat to make a man get up and dance. The author draws on decades of ethnographic research to explore the reasons behind this phenomenon, arguing that Sundanese men use dance to explore and enact contradictions in their gender identities.

Portrait

Henry Spiller is assistant professor of music at the University of California, Davis, and the author of Focus: Gamelan Music of Indonesia.

Pressestimmen

"This is a highly original and illuminating study of Sundanese performing arts and gender ideology. Theoretically challenging and historically rich, Erotic Triangles frames men's improvisational dance as the playful working out of gendered identity relations." - Andrew N. Weintraub, University of Pittsburgh"
