Announcing Ronald K. Brown Guest Artist at UW Dance

Submitted by Lisa Kwak on March 17, 2022 - 9:03am

The UW Department of Dance is excited to announce that choreographer Ronald K. Brown has been slated to be a guest in the department for three to four weeks beginning Fall Quarter 2022, thanks to a generous gift from Glenn Kawasaki. Originally scheduled for Autumn 2020, the residency was postponed once due to COVID-19, and then again when Brown suffered a stroke last April. Having already made extraordinary strides towards recovery, we are hopeful that Brown will finally be able to spend time at the Department. He will be engaging with students in many ways including setting an excerpt of a work on the undergraduate students for the UW Dance Presents concert, teaching classes, and holding gatherings for discussion. He will also be holding workshops and talks about his work for the UW and Seattle communities. Stay tuned for more information later in the spring.
