Dana Pajarillaga is a queer, Filipina-American dance artist living in Berlin. She has danced as a contemporary demi-soloist at Staatsballett Berlin, performing works by Sharon Eyal, Emanuel Gat, and Jefta van Dinther.
As a BFA Graduate of The Juilliard School, she has performed the works of Mercy Cunningham, Nacho Duato, Jerome Robbins, Andrew Tay, Christoph Winkler, and RUBBERBAND; in Montreal, New York, Toronto, and Berlin.
