Bali 1928: Gender, Cross-dressing, and Androgyny in Archival Balinese Film

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join anthropologist and ethnomusicologist Edward Herbst for an afternoon of rare film footage and unearthed music from early 20th century Balinese dance-drama. Herbst’s archives project Bali 1928explores the conversation on gender and the fluidity of "femininities" and "masculinities"—an abiding interest of Margaret Mead's work. Through the lens of extraordinary film footage from the 1930s, we see gender-bending in performance roles—males performing as females, females as males, and androgynous performers. Learn how Herbst and his research team visited the families of singers, dancers, and musicians featured in the archive to gain insight into their remarkable lives. A Q&A will follow the conversation.
