  • Interested musicians/students will be collaborating with selected student/student choreographers from the UW Dance Department, in coordination with the department's music director, Timothy Russell. Dance students will create/choreograph a piece to a solo /duo work (e.g. a piece for solo piano or solo oboe or duo piece for an instrument/voice and piano)  by underrepresented composers, living composers or systematically and historically marginalized composers. Before the semester ends, the DEIB Festival team will pair a soloist /duo with one dancer or two dancers (for pas de deux) so they can start brainstorming and collaborating as early as the winter break.
