Integrating Knowledges Summit
October 14, 15, and 16, 2016
Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre and University of Waterloo
The Silversides Theatre Artists Series 2016 presents Canadian actor and playwright Monique Mojica in a talk, "Inscripted Earth: embodiment of place as research, process and performance."
Monique 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.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
