Born in Beirut in 1978, Yalda Younes came to dance by chance, to yoga by injuries, and to sound by breath. She trained in flamenco with Israel Galvan in Seville, in electronic arts at ESEC in Paris, and in yoga philosophy and therapy at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. Currently residing in Berlin, she experiments with self-taught, intuitive methods across different mediums, with visceral listening remaining the anchor point for the development of her creative relationships with the world.

Simultaneously political and spiritual, communal and solitary, her sounding-body engages in internal-external conversations, seeking to experientially explore the interconnectedness of all things. Nourished by opposing forces, her choreographic approach plays with dynamics of stillness, micro-macro relationships, organized chaos and cathartic releases.
