Guest choreographer at BYU Oct. 20 to work with Dance Department

Brigham Young University’s Dance Department will host a brown bag luncheon with guest choreographer Edisa Weeks Thursday, Oct. 20, at 11 a.m. in 185/187 Richards Building.

Weeks has been on campus for the past two weeks working with dance students and choreographing new material.

The director of Delirious Dance Company, Weeks merges theatre with dance to create works that are physically dynamic and visually evocative. They explore the beauty and complexity of life. She has also performed with Jane Comfort, Dance Brazil, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Co., Annie-B Parsons, Sally Silvers, Reggie Wilson and the Kevin Wynn Collection.

She has lived in Uganda, Papua New Guinea and Brooklyn, N.Y., and graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Brown University. Following her graduation, she received her first formal dance training at the Alvin Ailey School.

For more information, contact Pat Debenham at (801) 422-3340 or Kerina Espinoza at (801) 422-1644.
