Danielle Georgiou

About

Danielle Georgiou is a video performance artist based in Dallas, TX. Her stage and video work deals with puzzles found in femininity—vulnerability, deformity, and beauty. Her work has shown across Texas, New York (Horton Gallery), California (Rogue Fringe Festival), Florida (Bosch Film Festival), Oregon (Portland’s Experimental Film Festival), and Germany (2nd Berlin Besucher Triennial). She exhibited both her performance and video work at the 2013 Texas Biennial, was a part of a three-person show at Eugene Binder Gallery in Marfa, TX, and recently completed a solo show at Women and their Work in Austin, TX.

Danielle is the Program Coordinator and Lead Faculty in Dance at Eastfield College and the Director of the UT Arlington Dance Ensemble. She is pursuing her Ph.D. in Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, and completed a two-year residency at CentralTrak—UT Dallas’ Artist Residency program in 2013. In 2011, she founded DGDG (the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group), a performance art dance group that works within ideas of German expressionism and dans theatre. The productions work toward creating compelling images of a “new female.” Whether collaborating or defining her own work, Danielle wants dancers that constantly strive to transform themselves, either in image or skill. Technique is your foundation—not your identity.
