    I have recently launched my history of Limbs Dance Company to commemorate 40 years since its founding. With the advent of Limbs in 1977, the language of movement in New Zealand changed inextricably, expanding and exploding the definition of dance from this small South Pacific nation. Fundamentally, the founding members of Limbs believed that dance could reflect common human issues and emotions and was capable of touching people from all walks of life. With this belief, they made dances that were simultaneously relevant, challenging, sexy, serious, fun and exciting. Limbs dances both reflected and shaped the zeitgeist of 1970 - 1980s New Zealand. Such a wide array of dances not only entertained and excited the general public, but also inspired other choreographers and artists from different fields to explore their own artistic voices. Spanning years of political protests and economic reforms, the works that Limbs presented in this time period and their performance settings - large music festivals, prisons and opera houses - reflect the changing nature of New Zealand society.

Ideal candidates will have Ph.D. in hand by the start of the appointment. Information on Reed's Dance Department is available at http://academic.reed.edu/dance/

Reed’s new Performing Arts Building, opened in Fall 2013, provides a vital facility for new initiatives in the performing arts and for fostering interdisciplinary opportunities. Having newly instituted a major in Dance in Fall 2016, the program has begun to accrue a cohort of serious dance students. Portland, Oregon has a thriving artistic community, numerous dance companies, a major dance presenting organization and an international performing arts festival.

    Reed College is a community that believes cultural diversity is essential to the excellence of our academic program. In your cover letter, please include a description of how you would engage and sustain the commitment to diversity and inclusion articulated in Reed College's diversity statement (http://www.reed.edu/diversity/).

    Please send a cover letter, CV, writing sample (article or chapter length), sample syllabus that you feel is representative of your teaching, sample of creative work if relevant, and three letters of recommendation to http://apply.interfolio.com/47105. These materials may include links to works online. Review of applications will begin February 15, 2018. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
