All the right moves

first_img With twisting and floating movements, Harvard Gaga dance course teaches students and community members to listen to their bodies Dancers and choreographers find camaraderie while stretching their creativity at Harvard Ballet Company Harvard archive shines an academic light on the social, poetic, and musical complexities of hip-hop GAZETTE: Have you grappled with any internal tension around embracing hip-hop culture as a practicing Muslim?SACKETT: There are some aspects of popular hip-hop culture that don’t go hand in hand with my faith, but the area of hip-hop culture that I have always participated in is the hip-hop that operates at the community level, teaching in Boys & Girls Clubs and after-school programs. I did that throughout my early career, and I saw the way that hip-hop culture and expression through dance helps kids get through tough times and deal with difficult emotions and hardships. I don’t think it conflicts with my Muslim identity. I just have to be very choosy about what I participate in and what’s OK for me, according to my beliefs. There are many ways to participate in hip-hop culture.GAZETTE: What role does education play in your creative practice?,SACKETT: Teaching is a way of learning, which is why I enjoy it so much. It’s also a way for me to honor my mentors and teachers and to share my love of dance. I had a couple of students that I taught at an arts high school in St. Paul, Minn., and they sent me a video of themselves doing the steps they learned in my class, five years later! I have former students who are teaching their own classes, and I was their first contact with dance, and to see them grow is the greatest reward. I travel and teach a lot as well, and it is so interesting to see the way that hip-hop draws in similar kinds of people across borders and languages. And it’s part of black culture, which I am very clear about when I’m teaching the history of hip-hop. We can’t divorce the dance from the people who created it. It’s important for people to know that they’re participating in something that was created by black Americans, and that the struggle of black and brown people in the Bronx is the legacy that they are carrying on when they dance. I feel that in participating, you have to give respect to your elders. There’s no room for someone to participate in hip-hop culture but hate the people who created it.GAZETTE: You are also an activist and work to counter Islamophobia. How does creativity and activism intersect for you?SACKETT: Being visibly Muslim, wearing hijab, and doing something as powerful as dance and representing it in this strong way — I think that that image is the complete opposite of what most people who don’t have a lot of contact with Muslims might see. Across the country, I’ve noticed that when I’m able to bridge that gap with dance and art, when I talk about misconceptions about Muslims and our religion, people are more likely to respond to me differently and ask questions they might not ask in a different situation. I think that’s crucial in America, to have the conversations that are uncomfortable and being open to those questions. For me, these kinds of conversations and finding what unifies us is the strongest weapon right now. I don’t want us to be divided; I want us to be unified. Related Flowing together Passing the barre Nas next to Mozart? Why not? Amirah Sackett uses dance to challenge conceptions of Muslim womanhood. The Chicago dancer, choreographer, educator, and activist combines hip-hop with Islamic themes to explore her identity and invites viewers to expand their understanding of movement as a mode of self-expression. During her visit to campus this week, Sackett met with undergraduate students at an ArtsBites session on Wednesday, sponsored by the Office for the Arts. And on Thursday she planned to teach a hip-hop dance master class at the Harvard Dance Center. That session will be free and open to the public. The Gazette spoke to Sackett about the importance of education in the arts, her activism, and love of poetry.Q&AAmirah SackettGAZETTE: When did you fall in love with dance?SACKETT: I was a kid who couldn’t sit still. When I heard music, I would just get up and start moving, and from about the age of 7 I was obsessed with learning steps. I have a background in contemporary dance and in classical ballet, and the way that I came to hip-hop was probably first through rap music and the way that it told a story. I loved the way that rap communicated things so efficiently in a short amount of time. I loved, and still love, the music of Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, Nas. When I started dancing, especially with hip-hop, it was more about mastering skills like breaking and popping. It was around 2011 that I started creating pieces that were more about saying something with that movement. The genre we call hip-hop dance has a rich and expressive movement vocabulary. We have so much to say, and now I’m trying to explore how to translate from what we do in a dance cypher — the circle — to a space like a stage.GAZETTE: What are some avenues for achieving that translation?SACKETT: I’ve been fusing Rumi’s poetry with hip-hop and funk beats, and then creating movement with Islamic themes. Rumi has been part of my exploration process in the last few years, and his poetry is popular in the United States, but his Muslim identity is often not discussed here. People are familiar with Rumi as a poet, but they forget that he was also an Islamic scholar. By using Rumi in my work, I’m channeling an artist who is so loved by all and fusing that with hip-hop culture, which I feel is a universal language. I love exploring and growing my skills, but I think it’s very important that I say something with my work. “I feel that in participating, you have to give respect to your elders. There’s no room for someone to participate in hip-hop culture but hate the people who created it.”last_img read more

Iseman: Players deserve blame for Syracuse’s struggles

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Doug Marrone can say what he wants. He can stand behind a podium at every press conference and preach that Syracuse’s struggles start with him and say that he needs to do a better job. He can take the blame and the spotlight off his players and bring it all onto himself.He’s the head coach; it’s his job to do that. That’s as far as it can go.Marrone is not the reason for the Orange’s disappointing start to the season. But when fans want to consider why Syracuse is playing poorly, why the players are turning the ball over so much, why the program as a whole can’t seem to move forward, they look to Marrone. They blame him. They say the team’s struggles are a reflection on him and that the players aren’t being held to a high enough level.But that’s all misdirected blame. Syracuse can be a winning program with Marrone at the helm. It already has. Syracuse played in a bowl game. Remember? The Pinstripe Bowl? Which came after a 7-5 season.This isn’t to say that Marrone should be absolved of all fault for this season’s struggles. But to say he’s the reason for Syracuse’s futility would be ignoring the Division-I football players that take the field every week with the task of playing at a high level. At some point, they’re the ones who need to shoulder some of the blame, as well.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Coach Marrone’s going to say what he wants to say,” center Macky MacPherson said. “Obviously I think it’s no secret that coach Marrone can’t go out there and play for us. Obviously, it has to start with us. It starts with me; I snap the ball and then Ryan goes from there. I think that’s something that we all know.”During his four years at Syracuse, Marrone has shown he’s a player’s coach. He’ll never criticize any of his players to the media. He’ll protect them and ensure they aren’t treated unfairly. It’s why he accepts the blame.It takes the pressure off the players and lets them focus on improving. That’s important considering they’re the ones on the field. The players are the ones who commit turnovers or make mental mistakes. It’s foolish to think Marrone ignores that in practice and doesn’t drill into their head how they’re supposed to play.Marrone is not glossing over any of his team’s mistakes. He even restructured his practice schedule to allow for more time to work on ball security.“We’ve worked on all the things that we can do from the standpoint of practice time,” Marrone said. “We spent the maximum amount of practice time on that, to a point where we’ve actually cut things out to work on it, emphasized it.”Marrone adjusted his practice schedule. Now the players have to adjust how they play on the field. He can’t do that for them.Wide receiver Alec Lemon said the team’s been focusing in on ball security since before the Orange’s bye week. So what happened when Syracuse committed four turnovers against Rutgers last Saturday?The players made the mistakes. Quarterback Ryan Nassib threw two ill-advised passes that were intercepted. Steve Rene fumbled on a punt return. Justin Pugh said he missed the assignment that caused the Orange’s field goal to be blocked and be returned for a Rutgers touchdown.Marrone wasn’t on the field. He didn’t commit any of them. The players know he’ll defend them, but they know the true responsibility is on their shoulders just as much.“It’s great because you know Coach has your back, because it’s not his fault,” Nassib said. “We shoulder the blame as players. It’s nice to know he’s got our back and he’s going to be with us in the long haul.”Turning the team around, starting Friday against Connecticut, will determine how much the players can raise their level of focus and limit their mistakes. All week long, Marrone emphasized it, and that’s the job of a coach. Now it’s each individual player to make sure they execute on the field.“It’s just raising the level of focus. I know personally I need to pick my game up, I have to play better. That’s really where we have to start,” offensive tackle Justin Pugh said. “If you play better individually, then you’re going to pick up everyone’s game around you, and that’s the approach I’m taking.”Marrone’s not the cause of these struggles, but because he’s the face of the team, he’s the one who takes the brunt of the criticism. And that’s certainly understandable since he is, indeed, the head coach.But this is not on Marrone.There is not much else he can do.“He put it on his shoulders,” MacPherson said. “But I think everyone knows we have a big part in it as well.” Comments Published on October 18, 2012 at 2:57 amlast_img read more

As a team, we have to work hard every day to do what the coach wants because we have the ability to do really well, but we need to work hard every day.’With the Milan derby coming up, he added: ‘We’re a great team and anyone who comes up against Inter knows it will be difficult for them.
