Kyah Dove is a nomadic performance artist who sees her artist identity as inevitably “hybrid”, saturating her performance works in dance, noise installation, spoken word, video art and ritual. She views her art as a means of passage through which activism, healing and transformation take place within her life. She is seeking performance at its most pure; its ecstatic core, and her work aims to birth all material from the most raw, honest and self-exposing state possible. Since graduating from the New Zealand School of Dance in 2010 she has gone on to gain her masters/teachers certificate in Reiki healing therapy, has completed an apprenticeship in shamanic native NZ tree and plant medicine, and is a certified Shakti spirit dance facilitator. She is now on a journey of discovery and experimentation with the pathways in which art, healing and nature co exist and collide to craft powerful change.
