Dancer
 

Huiwang Zhang is a dancer, choreographer, and screendance artist originally from 九江 (Jiujiang), China, received his early dance training from Beijing Dance Academy and later earned his MFA in dance from the University of Utah. As a performer, he has had the honor of working with choreographers like Stephen Koester, Eric Handman, Sara Pearson, Patrik Widrig, and toured nationally and internationally as a member of the China National Opera and Dance Drama Theater in Beijing. He attended Palucca Hochshule für Tanz Dresden in Germany to study choreography under the direction of Prof. Katharina Christl. Currently, his own artistic practice discloses the relationship between linguistic expression and body perception in different sociocultural contexts. His work has been presented in the Beijing Dance Festival 2016 and 12 Minutes Max Salt Lake City 2017. He is very grateful to join the Bill T. Jones/ Annie Zane company and feels honored to work with a company that fervently devotes its strength to this body-based art form.
