Eoin McKenzie

Artist

Eoin McKenzie is a performance maker, director, and participatory artist from Glasgow who creates work with and for young people. His practice exists in the spaces between contemporary performance, choreography, live art, writing, and time based actions; always attempting to unearth a liveness within the process, people, and places he engages with. He believes that live performance offers a mode of being that enriches how we interact as humans and the ways that we inhabit the spaces we exist within. Interested in how we experience and perceive the world around us, and in the ways that we shape it, Eoin uses performance-making as a way to renegotiate our human narratives, often seeking more compassionate and caring modes of being in the world. Within the work he creates, Eoin seeks to suspend the everyday in order to examine our contemporary reality – attempting to discover how, together, we might progress our contemporaneous situation. Or, at the least, see clearly the place we are currently in.
