Show Summary Details


This chapter is about the resistance to becoming an object for theological-philosophical reflection. Attention is given to the ways choreography and sonicity work together, how there is a choreosonic ethical demand that is germane to Blackpentecostal performance. This word, choreosonic, indexes the ways vibration is foundational to both sound and dance, how each is about vibration in and against worlds. The chapter elaborates indeterminacy at the heart of Blackpentecostal performance and celebrates such indeterminacy.

Keywords: Calvinism; Ciprieré; choreosonic; marronage; shouting
