This week's tour will be led by Markeith Wiley.
About the Presenter
California native Markeith Wiley is a multi-dimensional art maker who creates out of necessity. His vast movement vocabulary spans a lifetime of influences. As of late this anti-social extrovert dabbles in dance, sound, theater, a combo of all three, or none of the above. Wiley has been an arts educator in Seattle for a while now. When they are not in the studio you can find Markeith at Rainier Dance Center in Rainier Beach or on Capitol Hill as a managing artist director at Studio Current or choreographing with both Seattle Children’s Theatre and 5th Avenue Theatre.
Markeith holds a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts and has performed or collaborated with too many national/international artist to name. In the evenings, Wiley hosts a DJ event at Vermillion Art Gallery & Bar with fellow music enthusiast Alice Gosti and has started a monthly performance party at Studio Current called SC Sessions. Wiley was a member of the 2014 City Arts Future List and graced the cover of the magazine in 2016.
