About Meagan O'Shea

Hi!
Welcome to my Patreon page.

I’m trying to save the world.
Through dance*.

I travel the world dancing with people in different communities. Using improvisation and contemporary dance as a way to re-somaticize society, by connecting people to their intuition, physical and emotional intelligence and bringing them together. I create performances for others, I perform, I teach and I facilitate creative process. I work with lots of different people, but most often with young women. I share experiences between people and places.
*dance is shorthand for a range of contemporary performance and making practices. Sometimes it’s dance-theatre, sometimes its improv, clown, storytelling, theatre, visual spectacle, installations dance-films.

Here’s what that looks like:
  • Creating dance together across languages in an international collaboration called Léxico.
  • Performing Dream Another Day ~ reaching into the future, a retrospect of the mess we're in now in radically different contexts.  
  • Leading improvisation for creating, performing & for social change with Listen & Lead: improv strategies for a better world.
  • Teaching ensemble improvisation for creating and performing dance like no one is watching
  • Animating, Occupying and Disrupting public space with dance like no one is watching

SHARING THIS WORK AMPLIFIES IT’S IMPACT

Upcoming Activity and Projects:

Dream Another Day, artistic residency, Queens Collective, Marrakech, Morocco, 11-12.18
