Silversides Theatre Artists Series presents Monique MojicaExport this event to calendar

Monday, October 17, 2016 — 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM EDT

Join the Theatre and Performance program for a talk by Indigenous actor and playwright Monique Mojica, "Inscripted Earth: embodiment of place as research, process and performance."

Monique MojicaMonique Mojica will describe her evolving process of creating an Indigenous dramaturgy rooted in land-based embodied research. This presentation looks specifically at work begun in 2011 (along with a collaborative team of Indigenous artists) and focuses on effigy mounds and earthworks as the first literary structures on this land. 

Monique Mojica (Guna and Rappahannock nations)  is passionately dedicated to a theatrical practice as an act of healing, of reclaiming historical/ cultural memory and of resistance. Spun directly from the family-web of New York’s Spiderwoman Theater, her theatrical practice embraces not only her artistic lineage through mining stories embedded in the body, but also the connection to stories coming through land and place.

The Silversides Theatre Artists Lecture Series is presented by the Theatre and Performance program in the Department of Drama and Speech Communication.  This series commemorates the donations made by Brian Silversides to the Theatre and Performance program.  Brian Silversides was a Canadian actor, stage technician and entrepreneur who passed away in 1996.
