Fellow daydreamers meet, their two runaway minds, seemingly one. Only feeling what lay before them, eyes trip through darkness. Whirling, they move through what little light remains.
Kyra is a professional dancer and choreographer who has made a break to become an independent visual artist. Caring about messaging and purposeful visuals with movement to music. Operating under, "Moved To Be" as her dance collaborative. We create visuals about urgent social, political, and cultural happenings. Our work is savvy, slightly obsessive and sometimes awkward — and asks careful questions about our culture; where we've been and where we're headed, whilst cultivating the present moment. Stepping outside of boundaries and comforts to create healing and progression of self mastery.
I believe that by blending different art forms and senses you can create a more powerful punch of a piece. Our current culture, and my generation, is prone to watching video media. I want to create films that have something contemplative, uncomfortable and yet unspoken. My hope is to carry inspiration, to see and move through the world more wild. Awakening our expressive nature, to be less rigid and to challenge what is socially acceptable behavior.
