Megan Shindler

M.A. Candidate '18

Megan Shindler

Megan came to NYU Tisch after years of traveling the nation collecting stories from survivors of sexual violence in order to create the oral history and theatrical ethnography known as "S(he) Will Fade". Her personal practices in performance art and playwriting examine intersectional feminism; queer identity; and the experiences of trauma survivors, their transcendence, and their political empowerment. 

Why PS @ NYU?

If it is my social responsibility to serve disadvantaged and disenfranchised communities with my art; then I am here to deepen my philosophies, motivations, and techniques to raise the impact and power of my creations.
