Kristi Faulkner Dance is a contemporary dance company based in Detroit, that dares to be different. Known for their highly physical and humorously theatrical work that embodies difference and challenges gender roles, KFD creates thought-provoking, visceral experiences that generate meaningful conversation and social exchange. Performing everywhere from warehouses to community centers, from museums to the middle of the street, KFD believes in making dance accessible and empowering audiences to connect with their world.

The company is led by Founder & Artistic Director, Kristi Faulkner, whose work challenges and excavates ideas about sensuality, strength, authority, disgust, attraction, and objectification while centering on authenticity and shedding the artifice of technically-focused performance to show what makes us human in ways that are relatable, yet sometimes uncomfortable.
