What You Need to Know About : Culture as Power

Culture as power is a perspective that shows how performance can reveal the state of displaced
persons moving between cultures. From this view, cultural performance theory becomes a dynamic means for critiquing culture and a way to articulate the struggle of the lived experience of colonized and oppressed peoples. The theory provides a framework for analyzing what Turner calls the sensory codes of a culture. Such codes can range from food performances to political campaigns to cultural expressions of the body and its identity. Culture as power offers performance the inroad to reflect the dynamics of cultural processes and claims about which stories are important, who gets to tell those stories, how we shape the social canvas of cultural transformation, what is valued in a culture, and how we participate in creating a different vision for the future. Culture as power deconstructs the notions of identity by examining how humans negotiate, navigate, and transform systems of domination and control and explores the process by which self and social identity are crafted. Power is performed within the cultural context of the other and illuminates the dynamics of domination. By other is meant those in society marginalized due to sexuality, race, gender, socioeconomic status, or ethnicity.
