KJ Dahlaw is a queer and non-binary identified dance artist. They are interested in the body; the 'other' body, the corporeal body, the bio-regional body, the transgressive body, the queer body. The body pulses with the stories of our ancestors, the imprinting of culture, the instincts of our creaturely ways. KJ researches both the white, Christian hegemony that lives in their own body and practices of counter hegemony in the body. KJ graduated with their MFA in dance from Saint Mary's College of CA in the summer of 2018 and has been busy starting a dance company, Unruly Body Tanztheater, raising two children, tending to the fires of queer love and teaching dance.
