Unsettling Dramaturgy is an ongoing project bringing together Crip and Indigenous dramaturgs from across so-called Canada and the United States who work in theatre, dance, and experimental performance. Using digital platforms we gather to build relationships; to explore and document the critical convergences and divergences in our experiences and work; to amplify Crip and Indigenous aesthetics, ethics, practices, and leadership in our local, national and international performance ecologies; to push the conversations from inclusion to centring, from reconciliation to unsettling and decolonization.

Through this 2-hour live and interactive digital panel we will bring together 6 of the Collaborating Artists involved in Unsettling Dramaturgy. We will engage some of the unfolding themes and dimensions of Indigenous and Crip dramaturgies, and their relationships to live digital arts. The audience will be invited to act as witnesses to an initial exchange between these 6 artists, which will then be followed by an opportunity to activate conversations and new embodiments in response.
