Samenvatting (EN)

This project focuses on new discourses and practices in Western Europe and the Middle East in which Islam and the performing arts are creatively merged. In both minority and majority contexts, these artistic experiments are considered disconcerting for reasons connected to cultural politics, identity politics as well as different ideas about the place of the religious in the cultural sphere. The project aims to explain the process through which these debates about Muslim performing art productions in Western Europe become not only questions about the creation of cultural heritage but also about integration and citizenship. The project analyses these religious art experiments and ensuing debates not as contrary to inte-gration but as manifestations of cultural citizenship.
