Profile Information

Performance Discipline
Kira Dralle is currently a Masters candidate in the History and Theory of Contemporary Art program at the San Francisco Art Institute. Coming from a multidisciplinary background of music and literature, Kira’s interests have always formed around the concepts and issues that have linked mediums at their core. Her work as both a practitioner as well as a theorist have centered around issues and theories of the corporeal body, the construction and performance of identity, and the socio-political implications deeply ingrained in performance. Kira completed her undergraduate work in Studio Art at Bradley University in 2008. Post-graduation, she travelled to New York, working in conjunction with many artists at The Center for Photography at Woodstock. Since living in San Francisco, Kira has worked with many organizations such as the nief-norf Summer Festival in Greeville, South Carolina, exploring the medium of contemporary percussion performance, HaveMind Projects in Oakland, California, writing on the interconnected nature of visual and aural realms, Root Division in San Francisco as an art educator, and the San Francisco Art Institute working with Dr. Daniel Hackbarth, PhD. Kira was also a guest artist and speaker at Bradley University in 2011, providing conceptual critiques in discussion with Anastasia Samoylova. Post-graduation, Kira plans to continue her research within a doctoral program in Performance Studies and Feminist Theory.
