Nyda Kwasowsky (she/her). My language is the moving body and my practice is used as a tool for healing. Creating space to reveal our vulnerability, where listening and storytelling can foster human connections and collective care. This body has the role of remembering, dance as the action that collects us. My work centers around loss, grief and belonging. Transforming memories and histories from colonial supremacies. To voice and empower marginalized experience, to access empowerment.
Indo-Guyanese and British Ukranian, my ‘moving body’ echoes the fluidity and ambiguity of my identity. I score multidisciplinary improvisational explorations, using sensation to create emotional environments. My presence in this racialized body is connected to the past, to histories and the dreams of emergent futures.Creating a ritualist relationship to place and time. I hope to generate undefinable states that are sourced and shared through somatics. Where non-definitive synesthetic relationships become an opportunity to form connections that push at the boundaries of who and what we can be together.
