ABSTRACT Title of Document: TRIUMPH OF DISRUPTION: A MOVEMENT TO SUBVERT Kwame Densu Opare, Masters of Fine Arts, 2013 Directed by: Karen Kohn Bradley, School of Theater Dance and Performance Studies Triumph of Disruption was an evening-length work performed on March 14-15, 2013 at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in partial fulfillment of the M.F.A. degree in Dance from the University of Maryland's School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies. It was an artful attempt to show through dance and music, an epidemic of failure in America's methods of educating its youth. Using pop iconic imagery and popular music, Triumph was a funky, hip, and engaging journey entertaining the concept of Disruption as a method to alleviate the problems facing a particular group of young people. This paper is a documentation of my process, background research, experiences, and conclusions for this project.
