Hi! My name is Maya Quetzali (pronounced ket-ZAH-lee) Gonzalez.
I am a director and choreographer. I tell stories by and for and with other global majority people. I structure my rehearsal processes the way I wish the rest of the world was structured, prioritizing generosity and collaboration.
I am a proud arts worker. I currently serve as the Program Associate for the MAP Fund, working toward more equitable grantmaking practices.
I am an organizer with the Sunrise Movement, among others.
I am a 2020 graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama and a minor in producing. I attended NYU as a Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholar.
I send love and gratitude to my community.
I make my home in New York City and Texas' Third Congressional District. I use she/her pronouns. I'm Mexican-American. I live with the mobility impairment of SI joint dysfunction.
This picture of me was taken by Paris Benson.
If you need a director/choreographer/dramaturg/organizer/grantmaking systems developer, please reach out! I'm particularly interested in taking on remote creative projects, preferably after mid-May once my current projects are completed.
Please note that I will not respond to any MAP Fund-related requests sent to me on my personal email. If you wish to get in touch with me regarding MAP, please reach out to the email provided on the MAP contact page.
