Phakiso “Kiki” Collins is a TV/Film Executive Producer/Director, Dancer, and currently Vice President, Original Series at Paramount Global; overseeing the Love & Hip Hop franchise, Vh1’s Family Reunion, Vh1’s Couple’s retreat; and executive producing on Black Ink Crew franchise and projects for Comedy Central and Smithsonian Channel documentary. She's provided creative vision, leadership, and support to some of the country’s top production companies and television shows in the span of her 19 year career in media production. Phakiso has centered much of her work in unscripted television on expanding narratives, advocating for storytelling that humanize/entertains/impacts, along with aesthetically tantalizing. As an independent artist and trained dancer, she's created and curated several dance-video films and live performances allowing her to share work at American Dance Festival, Connecticut College, Howard University along with traveling to Senegal and Ghana. Phakiso is founder of Breakin' Out!, now co-produced with her sister, Shani Collins (of SNIC Eternalworksdance), which is a movement/ healing initiative that is workshop and performance based. What started as boisterous, crying, “Oh no they didn’t!” living room “parties” for women of color to come together and break silence around their sexuality has become a series of multi-media productions and performances aiming to liberate, heal, and empower women and young girls in their bodies. They are currently in progress of a new mixed media experiential performance, “Conjuring Home”, recently performed at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in Boston MA, that weaves their own coming of age story of womanhood, southern family’s legacy, and Black futures. With any collaboration and through her own recently formed media production and wellness company, Fluid Underbelly, of which she is the CEO, Phakiso’s vision is to use media and movement to create liberation and empower people to live life juicy and outrageously in their fullest expression!
