Fulbright-Trinity Laban Postgraduate Award in Dance

Keith Corprew-Asberry, “Keith Alexander”, born in Chesapeake, Virginia, graduated from Morehouse College in 2017 with his BA in Philosophy and a minor in French Studies. During his time at Morehouse, he was a member of the Honors Program and various performing arts organizations across the Atlanta University Center, such as the “House of Funk” Marching Band and Spelman Dance Theater.

In 2020, he received his Master of Theological Studies with a certificate in Black Church Studies from Emory University’s Candler School of Theology. He was the 2020 recipient of the Fellowship Seminarian Award at Candler for outstanding leadership in worship and arts and was recognized as an outstanding graduate for the School of Theology by Emory University. For the past 5 years, Keith has worked as an administrator with Morehouse College’s Howard Thurman Honors Program. There he has built programs that use literature and digital media to engage students in year-round discussions of various themes concerning Black culture and life. As a Fulbright Scholar, Keith will pursue an MFA in Creative Practice: Transdisciplinary at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. His proposed project is a dance film that explores the impact of racial identity and masculinity on Black men’s sense of belonging to self, space/place, and community, with special attention given to the experiences of Black men in the UK. Upon completing his MFA, Keith plans to continue a career in higher education and the arts creating spaces and works for cross-cultural conversations and to uplift the voice and experiences of the Black community across the world.
