POSTPONED: Humanities to the Rescue: Workshop with Susan Leigh Foster, “Choreographing Relationality”

March 27, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm



Humanities to the Rescue is an event series intended to bring the broader Buffalo community together to celebrate the humanities. We have been closely monitoring how current health and travel issues are evolving with regard to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). After consultation with University at Buffalo leadership and a great deal of deliberation, our proactive feeling is that the best thing we can do for our community is to limit non-essential large gatherings. As such, the UB Humanities Institute is postponing An Evening with Nick Cave (March 27) and Performance, Publics, Possibilty (a one-day symposium scheduled for March 28), with the hope of rescheduling in Spring 2021.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with these precautionary measures.


Presented as part of Humanities to the Rescue, this workshop explores a process of collectively choreographing a performance as yet another way to build relationality. Participants will be moving through space drawing on simple, pedestrian vocabularies, and then discussing what happened and determining how next to work together.

Susan Leigh Foster, choreographer and scholar, is Distinguished Professor in the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA. She is author of Reading Dancing, Choreographing Narrative, Dances that Describe Themselves, Choreographing Empathy, and, most recently, Valuing Dance: Commodities and Gifts in Motion.

All observers welcome.
