Kendra Ware is a performance based multidisciplinary artist who writes and directs original work that is steeped in cultural research and utilizes elements of ritual theatrics and experimental performance concepts to explore the intersections of race, gender, class, cultural politics and identity.  A graduate of CALARTS and Sarah Lawrence College, she oftentimes fuses  puppetry, video, music, text, and spoken word poetry of a personal nature to critique existing societal norms and challenge the notion of otherness.  Her work has been shown at REDCAT in Los Angeles, Son Of Semele, The Santa Barbara Contemporary Museum, The Last Bookstore, La Mama theater, and the Pan Asian Theater in New York City and site specific locations.  She has been a guest artist with the Long Beach Dance Foundation, Indy Convergence based in Indianapolis and Toronto and an invited artist to the La Mama Umbria Residency.
