Makisig Akin (they/them)

Person standing with crossed arms in half profile

I am a queer, transgender Filipino born choreographer, dance artist, facilitator, and activist. I was raised in the Philippines and am currently based in Berlin, Germany. My work focuses on the recognition of intersectional identities, reconnecting with my ancestry, and decentralizing Western ideologies in dance making. I hold an MFA in Dance from UCLA and my training includes Filipino Traditional Dance, Contact Improvisation, Kung Fu, Improvisation, walking meditation, Authentic Movement, Bouldering/Climbing, and Contemporary Dance. I examine how survival strategies can be translated into a communal physical practice, which I then use as a catalyst to a creative healing process. My work has recently been supported by Fonds Darstellende Künste and DISTANZEN 2022/2023.

Our objective is to process grief and find ways to transform it into empowering practices, and generate material from a place of recognition, reflection, and acceptance.
