Indigenous Culture and Contemporary Performance

Spiderwoman Theater and Loose Change Productions invite you to:

Indigenous Culture and Contemporary Performance:
A round table discussion moderated by Louis Mofsie, Director of the Thunderbird American Indian Dancers.

Participants include Diane Fraher of AMERINDA; Danielle Soames of Mixed Phoenix Theatre; Joe Cross of Leaf Arrow Theater; Muriel Miguel, Lisa Mayo, and Gloria Miguel, founding members of Spiderwoman Theater.

Native artists in theater, art and film are doing riveting, cutting-edge work – much still, surprisingly, operating under the radar. This eye-opening panel will introduce the audience to some of the most interesting practitioners in this community – and will include a heartfelt discussion about challenges faced: how does Native theater cope with stereotypes and clichés that still exist, surprisingly, even in this supposedly “aware” post-Colonial world.
