Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Jasmine Stack is a movement and visual artist whose heart never left the desert. In her dance work she investigates relationships between societies and their surrounding environments, using movement to physicalize individual and communal experiences of these natural and constructed landscapes.
Her current research as an MFA candidate at the University of Utah presents dance as a stimulus for conversation surrounding issues of environmental sustainability and social justice in Northern Arizona.
Jasmine has presented her dance research at the Reach UR Life Northern Arizona Suicide Prevention Conference (2015, 2016) in Flagstaff, Arizona, and has exhibited original choreography in venues including the Phoenix Center for the Arts, Herberger Theater, Beta Dance Festival, and American College Dance Festival. In addition to her own choreographic work, she has performed with the Deseret Experimental Opera Company and VERVE Dance Company, and has worked with both local and national dance artists including Eric Handman, Mariah Maloney, and Amy O’Neal. Her DEXO premiere was dancing Ian in Red Lake.
Jasmine lives, studies, and creates in Salt Lake City, Utah.
