Should Straight Actors Play Gay Roles? Or Is That Gayface? | Dance News | Scoop.it

It’s true that such a race-based list would at least raise eyebrows, if not inspire outright anger, due to the ever-present specter of blackface. But does this provocative comparison really hold up? Does “gayface” really deserve to be placed in the same awful category as racial impersonation, and if not, what makes it different?

Philippines' Dancing Inmates Inspire Prison Film

Philippines' Dancing Inmates Inspire Prison Film | Dance News | Scoop.it

"Dance of the Steel Bars" was shot in the Cebu provincial prison, the same place where up to 1,500 inmates dressed in orange uniforms danced to global fame in 2007. Their choreographed act still attracts thousands of tourists who troop to the prison to watch the performance, which recently included "Gangnam Style." Some of the dancing inmates appear in the movie too.
