Megan Danielle Kendzior is a Brooklyn-based dance maker and arts advocate, originally hailing from Sarasota, Florida. Her choreographic work offers buoyant explorative scores that allow imagination to blend with environmental influence, abstract narrative and historical inquiry. She is cultivating a practice that researches oppressive structures and inequities. Current research manifests in a new work, Anthem, that dissects theories of the innocent bystander.
Her work has been presented by Danspace Project and New York Live Arts (Fresh Tracks), among other venues in New York, Florida, North Carolina, Illinois, Virginia, Montana, Washington DC and in Israel.
Her five year performative research project, Witness, was celebrated through the National College Dance Festival's Outstanding Student Choreographer Award at the Kennedy Center in DC. Upon moving to New York in 2011 (after graduating from the University of Florida), she worked as an intern for Movement Research and Dance New Amsterdam, and as an administrative assistant to Wally Cardona, Anna Sperber, and the School of American Ballet. She is honored to work as an arts advocate for Movement Research, the American Alliance of Artists and Audiences, Yoshiko Chuma, DD Dorvillier, Jennifer Monson and Donna Uchizono.
