I'm a performance scholar, dramaturg, and contemporary singer currently based in Toronto, Canada.


Megan Johnson

I have an MA in Theatre & Performance Studies from York University, an MA in musicology from the University of Ottawa, and a BMus in voice from Acadia University. My research interests are diverse, ranging from theories of embodiment, critical disability studies, and social/cultural interpretations of the body, to contemporary vocal music, research-creation methodologies, new play dramaturgy, and feminist performance.

My performing life ranges from traditional canonical works to the wildly theatrical. In recent years I have turned to practice-as-research (PaR) approaches to better serve my interest in both academic inquiry and live performance. Nowadays, I mostly perform with the Halifax/Toronto arts collective Sesquisharp Productions, which I co-founded with my friend and colleague Jacob Caines.

I am currently pursuing my PhD in Theatre & Performance Studies at York University in Toronto where I focus on disability performance in Canada. When I'm not up to my ears in reading, I like to hike, swim, and take long streetcar rides in search of vegan cinnamon buns.
