UCI M.F.A. Alumni Waeli Wang Appointed Visiting Assistant Professor at University of Kansas Dance Department
Recent UCI M.F.A. ’19 dance graduate Waeli Wang will be joining the University of Kansas Theatre and Dance Department as a visiting assistant professor for 2020-22. As a dance and filmmaker, Wang sees art-making as a means for social justice and creates contemporary works that combine personal, familial, social, and artistic contexts to investigate the human condition for the concert stage, cinematic screen, and alternative spaces. Overall, Wang is on a quest to create work that “fuse movement and imagery, figurative and abstract, and the poetic personal.” Most recently, Wang has been working as a guest choreographer for Santa Clara University.
During her time at the University of Kansas, Wang will work closely with students teaching contemporary and modern dance technique as well as choreographing for the KU University Dance Company.
Her UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts and department of dance families are excited for Wang as she embarks on this new journey and wants to wish her all the best.
