How do we devise our own arts career in a way that that moves us away from settling for survival and towards thriving in prosperity?
The second of GRT’s Collaborator Roundtable events, THE ART OF PROSPERITY features Makambe K Simamba in community conversation on the topics of creating your own arts life: your rituals, your intentions, your standards, your boundaries, and your overall practice.
Creators making their own work and directors working with creators are invited to join us on Monday, January 6, 2020 at 8 PM in Two Houses Brewery (1516 10 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T3C 0J5).
Space is limited. If you are interested in participating, please email Kate Stadel: [email protected]. Briefly outline your experience as a director/creator and why you are interested in attending.
Makambe is joining Ghost River in January to develop a new project entitled MAKAMBE SPEAKS.
A bare set but for a stool, bottle of water, and a mic stand. Enter A Black Calgarian Female who is finally ready to talk about her natural hair in front of white people, who hates Nestle but keeps buying bottled water, and who wants to ask colonizers why they would make the entire world learn English but still allow COCKNEY to be a thing. Through stand up comedy, audience interaction, and a little bit of twerking, MAKAMBE SPEAKS tackles the meaning and mayhem of performed identity, asking us how much of who we are…is who we’re not?
