Event Description

Kathleen Wessel is a movement artist, choreographer, director, writer, and educator from Orlando, Florida. She holds an MFA in Dance Performance and Choreography from Florida State University and a BA in Psychology from Emory University. Currently, Kathleen is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Dance Performance & Choreography at Spelman College and director of Spelman Dance Theatre.
Katheen’s choreographic research explores the intersections between narrative movement, devised theater, and live performance in non-traditional spaces. With Brooklyn-based artist Kelly Bartnik, Kathleen co-directs HEREafter, a long-running episodic immersive theater production based in Atlanta. Most recent awards include "Outstanding Choreography" for Flying Lessons at the New York Musical Festival in 2019 and a “Best of Theater: Choreography” award from the Orlando Sentinel for her work on the 2020 immersive walking play Bright Young Things. Kathleen also served as associate director and co-choreographer for The Georgia Incarceration Performance Project Presents: By Our Hands, an award-winning devised archives-to-performance production exploring the history of convict labor in Georgia. She is lead choreographer for a new immersive dance-based production for The Renassiance Theater in Orlando opening October 2021.
In 2007, she co-founded Staibdance and danced with the company for a decade. In addition, she co-created the Staibdance Summer Intensive in Sorrento, Italy and served on the faculty for eight years. She has performed and taught throughout the American Southeast, Las Vegas, New York, Italy, and Sweden, and her movement studies have taken her to London, Tel Aviv, and most recently Berlin.
Before landing at Spelman, Kathleen taught at Emory University and Oxford College of Emory, where she was director of Oxford Dance Company for three years. Her choreography has been twice selected for American College Dance Association Gala concerts. She is also a contributing writer for ArtsATL.
