    Graham Brown (BFA: U of UT; MFA: U of MD) joined the dance department in 2013. He teaches courses in technique, choreography, partnering, identity, and history. His research is focused on creating evening-length experiential performance work that conveys personal narrative through a highly athletic and rhythmically infectious physicality. His current production, Sonder ( is an immersive dance-party theatre experience, occupying a historical 3-story building in SLC. It has been acclaimed as “stunningly intricate…a true tour de force” by DC Metro Theatre Arts. His work has also been presented by Repertory Dance Theatre’s LINK Series (SLC), Queen’s College (NY), the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center (MD), the Sugar Space (SLC), and the Open Look Festival (St. Petersburg, Russia). Graham currently performs internationally with PEARSONWIDRIG DANCETHEATER (DC). He is sustained by his wife Lehua and their children Isobella, Oliver, Elliette, and Ana.
