The Fisher Center series, “Art, Gender and Activism” will conclude Thursday, April 26, with a lecture by Seónagh Odhiambo, “Sand and Bone: 'World Dance,' Choreography and Pedagogy,” at 7:30 p.m. in the library's Geneva Room.
Her lecture is a photo documentary created from her one-semester course, Contact Zone, in which she and students choreographed the faculty dance concert piece, “Sand and Bone.” The talk invites the audience to think about how one moves beyond superficial representations of multiculturalism when drawing on world dance traditions in dance choreography and education.
Odhiambo's talk should be interesting to all those seeking to think through the relation of teaching and scholarship.
As is traditional, the roundtable will follow at 8:45 a.m. Friday in the Fisher Center, 212 Demarest. All interested students, faculty and staff are invited.
