Kristi Faulkner Dance
Kristi Faulkner is a choreographer, performer, filmmaker, educator and activist. Based in Detroit, she operates under the philosophy "dare to be different" - creating thought-provoking, visceral experiences that generate meaningful conversation and social exchange. Faulkner creates highly physical and humorously theatrical work that embodies difference and challenges gender roles. Her work challenges and excavates ideas about sensuality, strength, authority, disgust, attraction, and objectification while centering on authenticity and shedding the artifice of technically-focused performance to show what makes us human in ways that are relatable, yet sometimes uncomfortable. Performing everywhere from warehouses to community centers, from museums to the middle of the street, Faulkner believes in making dance accessible and empowering audiences to connect with their world. Community engagement is integral to her artistic practice. She has led local community workshops at Lafayette Community Gardens, Affirmation
