About the Workshop:
Emily + Jeanette offer space in the virtual realm to connect with each-other, our bodies, our hearts, & Spirit. We will share creative concepts we are currently exploring in our individual processes and invite participants to experience their own relationship to the themes and values we are presently articulating. We invite you into this digital space with expansion, playfulness, & joy! Come as you are and stay as you feel. All are welcome.
We acknowledge the Land (our first Mother) which holds us in all our creative endeavours. Emily residing on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene Peoples in Treaty 1 Territory and the Métis Nation. Jeanette residing on the ancestral and unceded Squamish (Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw), Tsleil-Waututh (səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ) and Musqueam (xʷməθkʷəy̓əm).
About Emily Solstice Tait + Jeanette Kotowich:
Jeanette and Emily both trace their families lines to prairie lands. Jeanette is originally from Treaty 4 territory Saskatchewan, and creates work that reflects a Métis cultural narrative within the context of contemporary Indigenous dance performance and Indigenous futurism. Emily is from Treaty 1 Territory and is a member of Beren Rivers First Nation (Treaty 5), her practice is rooted in contemporary dance but her work crosses into theatre, devising, choreography, and stage management. Dance and theatre have criss-crossed our creative paths for the past three years. Now, in this time of stillness, we have come together to strengthen one another and build our collective dance methodology with the guidance of selected established Indigenous artists who have gone before us. Marsi, Hiy Hiy, Meegwetch to those who so generously share with us.
