For the fourth year this fall, Washington State University’s four-day Humanitas festival introduces students, staff and the greater community to a diverse sampling of arts and culture from around the world. Organized by a bevy of arts and performance groups at WSU, the University of Idaho and in the Pullman/Moscow community, performances open to the public include live dance, theater, music and film. A highlight of this year’s version is a performance by the Villalobos Brothers, who blend the rhythm and melody of their native Mexico with intricate harmonies of jazz and classical music. Also catch a modern-day retelling of Homer’s Iliad, and see some moving dance performances featuring styles originating from Africa, Cuba, Brazil and India.
Sept. 20-24; times and locations vary • Washington State University, Pullman campus • Find complete details and a schedule at performingarts.wsu.edu
