Kianí del Valle (b. San Juan, Puerto Rico) is a Berlin-based dancer, choreographer, director & performance curator with global professional experience. Driven by anthropological, biological and sociological concepts, Kianí’s work merges the lines of contemporary dance & performance art within film, photography, architecture, pop culture, technology and sound. Her embodied practice is guided by the interdependence of the act of physical exhaustion, intuitive groove, movement meditation, ritualistic practices, migrational journeys, and paranormal experiences. This is intertwined in the craft of theatrics and amplified with a visual component that often taps into the magical, surreal, fictional and dystopian. In recent works she has deepened her research in finding the subjectivity of historical Caribbean narratives, particularly in postcolonial realities and taíno indigenous culture.
