Megan Yankee is an Mexican American dancer, experimental choreographer, trauma-informed movement educator, and citizen artist based in Durham, North Carolina.
“This idea of restricted existence permeates Megan’s work. To see her dance is to witness freedom in layers of movement. The contrast between freedom and restriction that Megan embodies brilliantly interprets Cortázar’s quote. Like the axolotls, she is on display. And for brief moments she lets us peer into her psyche, showing an identity that is a balancing act.” Vicotria Bouloubasis, 2019, INDYWeek (Durham, NC)
