Working (Undecided Title) or W(UT), happens when a group of artist throw a party!

Set inside a dance party for resistance and resilience Markeith Wiley’s lyrical happening will demand that we all be present with one another and let go of traditional performance viewership. By creating an abstract community Working (Undecided Title) or W(UT) will dissolve the gap between thinker and doer, giver and receiver, producer and consumer, audience and artist. See how we are all performers.


About the Artist 

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 & 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 artists 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 & also graced the cover of the magazine in 2016.
