Marcus Ian McKenzie is an experimental performance maker working in Naarm, originally from Lutruwita. His work uses the relationship between audience and performer as a site for bizarre new encounters, often involving schisms in language, parafictional world-building, hyperstitional mythologies and questionable dancing. Rigorously conceptless and conceptually rigourless; his work is for anybody, not everybody.
Marcus has recently developed new works for RISING, Arts Centre Melbourne, Gertrude Contemporary, Malthouse Theatre, The Wheeler Centre, and The Substation. He has collaborated in Australia and internationally with many renowned artists and companies, and received traveling fellowships from the Ian Potter Cultural Trust and Mike Walsh Foundation. In 2021 he was mentored by both Experimenta and APHIDS.
