Juliana Fadil-Luchkiw is an artist, performer, and PhD student in Performance Studies. Their work deals with how dreams and fantasy are embodied in sociocultural life, focusing on South-South exchanges, imperialist constructions of otherness and colonial fantasies, transferable racialized aesthetics, and the relationship between dance, sex, and labor. Juliana's dissertation project deals with how SWANA cultural practices and gestures are re-routed through certain forms of Latinidad, with specific emphasis on music, dance, and the figure of the belly dancer in the world culture industry. Juliana has also performed and presented artistic work throughout the U.S. and internationally.
