DOCUMENTING AND TRANSMITTING QUEBEC'S CONTEMPORARY DANCE HERITAGE / FONDATION JEAN-PIERRE PERREAULT
EC2

Welcome, Kama!

The FJPP is thrilled to welcome Kama La Mackerel as a guest artist for the year ahead.

Kama La Mackerel is a Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist, educator, writer, community-arts facilitator and literary translator who works within and across performance, photography, installations, textiles, digital art and literature. Here is how they describe their practice:

“My work aspires to articulate languages of decoloniality through inter-textual and inter-textural artistic practices. My life’s work emerges from a concern for justice and an imperative to heal from colonial pasts.”

Kama’s involvement with the FJPP is part of our desire to decolonize the way we look at dance and, especially, to look critically at our actions: to analyze what we document and what we omit; to reflect on our target audience; and to look into new actions. Kama will, of course, be invited to share their reflections on EC2.
