The Substation/ Artist/Marcus McKenzie/
Marcus McKenzie is an experimental performance maker living 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 rigorless; his work is for anybody, not everybody.
Marcus’ work has been commissioned by Arts Centre Melbourne, Malthouse Theatre, & RISING, and won numerous awards. He has collaborated in Australia and internationally with many renowned artists and companies, and received fellowships from the Ian Potter Cultural Trust and Mike Walsh Foundation. In 2021 he was mentored by both Experimenta and APHIDS.
