Maxi Hawkeye Canion (they/them) is an Improviser, Durational Performance/Movement Artist and Director based in Brooklyn, NY and originally from El Paso, TX. They are currently working on a multidisciplinary series titled “A Titan in Flesh”. As with most of their work, this series focuses on improvisational research and embodying impermanence. Collaboration is integral to their productions and they love to incorporate their interests in sculptural garment designs, sound chambers, and textural sets. Through durational trances, Maxi processes their experiences inside the dream sequences these interests craft to invoke dialogue around identity, intimacy, and these newly imagined worlds. In performance, they dive through transformative states to conjure their history and lineages to create visually transporting work.
