Kristel Baldoz is a Filipina-American performing artist from Delano, California. She creates performances as a form of abstract storytelling by merging movement, objects, improvisation, text, and family history. Using her dance background and family‚Äôs immigration stories as a substrate, she vacillates in and out of conventional gestures exploring and integrating other mediums and materials with movement. She is also a budding ceramicist. As an arts administrator, she has supported the operation at Movement Research, project managed for Faustin Linyekula, and assisted Anna Deavere Smith. She holds an MA in Arts Politics from New York University and a BA in Dance, Theater, and Performance Studies from UC Berkeley.
