She:kon, Aneen! Dwellings is a performative, immersive response to the complex Indigenous-Canadian relationship that addresses the history, realities and dreams of the Indigenous house and home, and its effect on the land and on our bodies. Over centuries there has been a massive displacement of our Peoples from their homes and homelands. This performance acknowledges this history and tries to bring forth the possibilities of home and land. We acknowledge the Indigenous Nations in whose territory we are performing: the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, the Huron. We acknowledge as well the artists and culture workers of this territory. Thank you for allowing us to be here.
Small audience groups will migrate through a series of unconventional performance spaces on campus to experience themes ranging from the sacred to the abject. Led by Theatre professor Ursula Neuerburg-Denzer, in collaboration with Indigenous visiting artists Emilie Monnet (Anishinaabe/French) and Floyd Favel (Cree) the project includes works by Kanien:keha'ka media artist Skawennati, and Kanien:kehaka scholar and storyteller Kahente Horn-Miller, Bear Clan. Dwellings connects Concordia students, faculty, researchers and artists across disciplines and communities including Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, Matralab, Indigenous Futures Cluster + Obx Labs for Experimental Media, Topological Media Lab, and SenseLab.
