December 2 at 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
Please join us for an online lecture by Rosy Simas, a transdisciplinary artist who historically has presented work as a choreographer. She is Haudenosaunee, Seneca, Heron clan. Culture, history, and identity stored in her body are the underpinning of all of her work as a dance artist, administrator, and advocate. Her choreography investigates how culture, history and identity are stored in the body and expressed in movement.
For more than 20 years she has created works dealing with a wide range of political, social and cultural subject matter from a Native feminist perspective. Her works have been presented throughout the U.S. and Canada. She uses performance opportunities, speaking engagements and community discussions to advocate for contemporary Native artists and to bring awareness to Indigenous issues locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
