Heather Kravas grew up in Pullman, Washington, homeland of the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) Tribe and Palus people, where she studied ballet and the experimental theories of Grotowski. Since 1995, Kravas has investigated choreographic, improvisation and collaborative practices in contemporary dance to explore the limits of choreography and her artistic abilities. Punk, feminist, precise and extreme, her work is continually built, wrecked and reconstructed to activate curiosity and examine relationships between art, power, agency and desire. Kravas has received support from numerous organizations such as The Guggenheim Foundation and her choreography has been presented at venues including American Realness, Fusebox Festival and Performance Space New York as well as internationally in Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Russia and Slovenia.
