SPROUTS

a two-women play


A non-narrative narrative about the entangled and indissoluble bond between mother and daughter, the play Sprouts parallels Katey and her mother’s experiences grappling with their Indigenous identity through the characters of Big and Small. Inspired by Spiderwoman Theater’s working technique of “storyweaving”, and Monique Mojica’s process of accessing ones’ “blood memory”, the play interconnects and interweaves personal narratives, fragments of memory, vivid images, and spoken word pieces by Rhiannon Mcgavin and Kate Nash to create a complex emotional, cultural, and political tapestry in an overlay of interlaced designs (Spiderwoman Theater). The play uses rhythmic, evocative dialogue to therapeutically re-appropriate and recalibrate the pain of intergenerational trauma into a tangible form; exposing the gaping wound of memory so that it can eventually scab over (Mojica). A deeply personal piece, Sprouts is an intergenerational memoir and mosaic of inspiration.

GRIZZLY

a one-person play


Nooke, a trickster, shape shifts into a Grizzly Bear tells us narratives of the wounded and shows how they eventually rise. A weaving together the literary and metaphorical styles of Marchssault, Miguel, Fobister, and Monkman, with my own queer indigenous identity to reclaim and recalibrate accounts in Jon Krakauer’s Missoula: Rape and The Justice System in a College Town. The accounts are layered with the story of the hunting of nyah-gwaheh or the great bear, one so large, powerful, and magical that many thought it must be some kind of monster, who was followed into the woods and slain by hunters.
