July 22 to 25, 2020
Pregones/PRTT is proud to partner with Jane Gabriels and PEPATIÁN for the first digital edition of their annual Indigenous Women Artists Residency, a project co-directed with Caridad de La Luz, on July 22-25, 2020.
This border-crossing gathering raises the visibility of self-identified Indigenous women artists by providing virtual space to share knowledge through conversation, creative workshops, informal showings, and opportunities to reflect, rejuvenate, and reconnect with the rivers and green spaces of The Bronx, and with its people.
Culminating in online performances and public dialogue, this third installment provides the artists with novel ways to build bridges and deepen connections for First Nation peoples from British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province, to the Boogie Down, NYC’s greenest borough.
In June of last year, Caridad de La Luz, Jerome Hill Artist Fellow in Theater and Performance, visited Vancouver to participate in Olivia C. Davies’ Matriarchs Uprising Festival. The digital residency at Pregones evolved from this prior meeting and a research trip to Haida Gwaii.
The highlight event on Saturday, July 25, 2020, features an international and inter-nation gathering of performing artists from across Turtle Island (North America) offering recent performance works and conversation. Presentation features in-development reading of Caridad de La Luz’s From Poor to Rico.
