Meagan Bertelsen is a movement artist based in Salt Lake City. A 2016 graduate from the University of Utah, she has a BFA in Modern Dance and an Honors Degree with a thesis in solo improvisation. Alongside her personal research, she has been a longtime member of Porridge for Goldilocks, a group of performance improvisers of various disciplines. For her, collaborating across mediums is a challenge of the relevancy and abilities of her craft.
Joining forces with DEXO for Red Lake was a dream come true. Meagan has danced in other intersectional works including Porridge’s Wood In Nails, an evening-length commission, The Mists, a site-specific dance theater across Red Butte Gardens, and her curatorial debut, The Museum of Nobody. Her stage performances include choreography by Scott Wells and Steve Koester, as well as independently produced shows by peers Dat Nguyen, Natalie Gotter, and Erica MacLean. She is currently working with an all-woman cast on Dollhouse, an immersive evening of dance throughout a local historical home.
