Student Profile

Margit Galanter
Performance Studies

Margit Galanter is a dance poet, educator, and cultural instigator living on Huchiun, unceded Chochenyo Ohlone land, also known as California, East Bay. Margit is fascinated by the inextricable relations made evident through subtle movement, dialogue, and perceptual vibrancy. Hir syncretic approach is based on decades of practice in movement/art lineages such as Suprapto Suryodarmo’s Amerta Movement, Lisa Nelson’s Tuning Scores, the Feldenkrais Method, and Wild Goose Qigong. Shx collaborates with queer, feminist, critical race studies, as well as earth-erotic, intercultural, and embodied approaches. This mosaic of inquiry and action is assembled and offered through the vivid grove — a live art school for moving, learning, creative evolution, and collective liberatory practices. Margit has written multiple articles, chapters, and co-edited the book Embodied Lives and is currently a doctoral student at University of California at Davis in Performance Studies.
