NWNW 2017: Kim Lusk

Subtle humor, technical footwork, 90s pop beats and a bit of country giddy-up — Kim Lusk’s Quartet for the Dead Set is a story about the ultimate power of the unlikely winner. Come see it performed as part of the first weekend of the NW New Works Festival, from June 9-11! 

Quartet is a part of A Dance for Dark Horses — an evening-length piece that will premiere next March as part of Velocity Dance Center’s Made in Seattle program. Another excerpt of the work-in-progress will be shown this fall on a shared bill at Velocity.


Kim Lusk is descended from a hearty line of cowboys, homesteaders, and mountaineers. A performer and choreographer based in Seattle, her choreography has been presented at Velocity Dance Center, Bumbershoot, Vashon Center for the Arts, Trigger. New Dance Happenings., Seattle International Dance Festival, and Connecticut College. Her work is supported by Velocity’s Creative Residency program. Kim has performed with zoe|juniper, and serves as Rehearsal Director + Choreographic Assistant to the company setting zoe|juniper's work around the country. She currently performs with Peggy Piacenza and Britta Joy Peterson. She holds a degree in dance from Connecticut College. 


Kim Lusk, PETE (Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble), Katie Piatt, and Cameo Lethem perform in next weekend’s Studio Theater Showcase, June 9-11!
