  • This thesis explores recontextualization of four motifs from the Ukrainian dance Hutsulka. The goal of this thesis is to critically evaluate the assumption that motifs from a staged performance of a Hutsulka have strong continuity with the village participatory dance tradition. Four common motifs, which appear in both the vival and reflective contexts, have been selected for analysis in this study. Much of the thesis text will involve a comparison of these motifs as they are performed in their respective contexts.
