Katelyn Sanchez

As a dance-maker, performer, and writer, I am captivated by the probability of change and how that affects my artistic process. Because I strongly oppose any kind of withdrawal from authenticity, I find my community with artists who also create what they determine to be essential. By ruffling consciousnesses and disturbing comfortability, my work strives to leave observers without a clear translation. In order to immerse observers into the conversation, I play with storytelling, literary intertextuality, a spectrum of pedestrian and contemporary concert movement, and a conglomeration of theatrical elements including extravagant costumes and props. Ultimately, my work does not allow for the observer’s nonchalance or disingenuous involvement; it encourages introspection.
