Kdindie is a performance designer making architectures
at the intersection of dance, theater and technology.
Choreographer and movement educator embodies characters
exploring indigenous cultures with a queer decolonial approach,
in a quest for the cosmic common sense of human diversities.
Kdindie is a digital self, a trinary identity encoding all my three selves Kaartik, Denny and indiemotion.

Kaartik is my spiritual name received in 2009 as a certified Yoga teacher by my Guru at ICYER in Pondicherry (India). Its meaning is "son of the Pleiades", related to Kartikeya the original name of the hindu god of war. I've emerged with this name as an educator of Yoga and sacred devotional dances. After studied extensively BharataNatyam classical indian dance and Yoga Therapy with my Guru Ujwal Bhole, studied Hula ancient hawaiian dance and Huna healing art at Kalani Honua educational center in Hawaii. Completed my studies of Art Therapy at SIAF Accademia di Maestria, Trieste.

indiemotion is my creative platform
since 2006 producing performance art through an ecosystem of community events and movement education. The creative method linking modern somatic practices, ancient sacred dances and yoga ethics through their common codes. The inter-in-dependece i found between world indigenous traditions inspired me to develop a collaborative process for bridging diverse communities.
