about

Kendall Perry is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, artist and collaborator expanding the boundaries of art making beyond the usual disciplines. Kendall is most inspired when voicing the ineffable through music, emotive and meditative while simultaneously fiercely passionate.

They are currently finishing a masters course at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Kendall is exploring the in-between, liminal spaces and indeterminacy.

Kendall got their start producing their original work at a small festival Gatas Y Vatas in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2011 and 2012. They began creating work which blurred discipline and collaborated with other practitioners. This gave rise to their first production part of their undergraduate thesis “Unravel” (2014), then “Destinata” (2015), which combined acoustic and visual idioms by incorporating the naturalistic vocabulary of their photography.

Kendall currently has a longstanding collaboration with contemporary dance company Wild Heart Dance, directed by Kat Gurley. Their collaboration has produced three productions together, "The Vulnerable Cure" (2016), "The Beloved" (2017) and “The Last Land Before Sky” (2018).
