Books By Author Susan Leigh Foster

Choreographing Empathy by Susan Leigh Foster Choreographing Empathy, Paperback (November 2010)

What do we feel when we watch dancing? Do we 'dance along' inwardly? Do we sense what the dancer's body is feeling? If we do, how do these responses influence how we experience dancing and how we derive significance from it? This book challenges the idea of a direct psychphysical connection between the body of a dancer and that of their observer.

Worlding Dance by Susan Leigh Foster Worlding Dance, Paperback (June 2009)

What world has been constructed for dancing through the term 'world dance'? What kinds of worlds do we as scholars create for a given dance when we undertake to describe and analyze it? This book, now in paperback, makes new epistemological space for the analysis of the world's dance by offering a variety of new analytic approaches.

Choreography and Narrative by Susan Leigh Foster Choreography and Narrative, Paperback (December 1996)

The first critical history of French ballet that illuminates relations of politics, spectacle, gender, and narrative.
