Dakota Zender is an artist, dancer and movement director invested in cultivating relationships between states of consciousness and bodies. Zender has found the meaning of his life in movement and wants to share his experience with as many people as he can. Zender is originally from Wyoming where the mountains have informed how he views art and the society we’ve created. The expansive sky of the West has catalyzed his understanding that performance when approached from the same expansive quality can access truth that lies beneath society’s analytical construct. As an artist and storyteller Zender seeks to use as many mediums as he can and invites the art of collaboration into his process in an effort to find a more universal experience.
