La "mise en savoirs" des danses africaines : Approche anthropo-didactique des liens entre transposition d’une pratique culturelle et évolution de ses modes de diffusion : le cas du sabar au Sénégal et en France

Abstract : Dance of the popular districts of Dakar, sabar dance is subject to professional and spatial reconfigurations. This dance was formerly defined as originating from a line of griots and education through informal institutions. New frames structure this dance tradition in a more formal way, integrating it in the "art" category and leading to a new economic structure. The griots, whose knowledge is an atavist transmission, are no longer in the majority in professional circles of dance. This leads to new attitudes of transmission, training and learning of dance. The sabar is institutionalized, to access the international legitimate choreographic field. This thesis studies the dialectic between traditional references (religious, old, etc.) and modern approaches, in light of the new professionalization of these dancers. How do the processes of institutionalization and transposition of the practice of the sabar allow and encourage exchanges and circulation of corporealities and dancers around the world? Becoming a sabar dancer at a professional level means getting one’s education both from "classical" and formal learning, and from everyday, informal learning This overall education marks the porosity of the structural categorizations of learning. This thesis highlights the multiple modifications involved in this learning. It explores choreographic changes and shows how sabar dance is undergoing a reconfiguration in terms of gender and social status.
