iele paloumpis

iele paloumpis is a dance artist, educator, intuitive healer, and death doula. their healing work is rooted in kinesthetic awareness, Tarot, herbal medicine, and some astrological know-how – all within a trauma-informed framework that centers social justice.

Choreographic works have been shown through Brooklyn Arts Exchange, New York Live Arts, Dixon Place, the Flea Theater, Movement Research, Painted Bride Art Center, Franklin Street Works, and Taubman Arts. they’ve danced for niv Acosta, devynn emory, Jaamil Olawale Kosoko, Jen McGinn, Katy Pyle, Emily Wexler, and Nina Winthrop.

iele received a BA from Hollins University in 2006 and was awarded end of life doula certifications from Mount Sinai, Valley Hospice, and Deanna Cochran’s Accompanying the Dying Program between 2014-16. iele has studied Tarot since 1996, most recently under the mentorship of Eva Yaa Asantewaa.

iele is currently developing a somatic practice addressing the needs of those who are moving through grief.
