Alabama -- Rhea Speights

Alabama – Rhea Speights
Rhea Speights (FOI 08 Alabama) dances, makes dances, and teaches dance. In attempt to fulfill her creative impulse, she composes video work and creates soundscores as well. Rhea performs with Corpus Euphonium, a collection of improvisational dancers and musicians, and choreographs for a local modern dance company that is in the middle of changing its name (any suggestions?). She received a B.A. from the University of Alabama in 2002 where she later served as adjunct faculty in the department of dance for two and a half years. Rhea has shown her dance, video, and videodance work at various venues across the southeast with the art collective SynArts which she helped found in 2005. She will be performing Freedom of Information at Greencup Books in Birmingham.
