Bio

Danyele is a set-maker from Virginia, working at the intersection of performance, social-practice, and sculpture. Embodiment and community are the total orbit of Danyele’s practice, and the ‘set’ is her material trajectory. She creates her multidisciplinary, time-based sets by merging and cycling roles as performer, organizer and sculptress. Currently Danyele organizes with For The Gworls around Black trans health and housing justice, and she holds a Public Engagement Fellowship at Dia Art Foundation (2019-2021). Danyele has shown work at the FABnyc, Dance Place, Performance Space NY, and the Hemispheric Institute NYU. She is represented by the House of Nina Oricci and received her BA in African American Studies from Stanford University (2019).
