The Meet The Artist series highlights amazing and talented performing arts professionals from diverse backgrounds.
We’re back with this month’s featured artist. We encourage you to watch these videos with an open mind, and to remember that starting a relationship with an artist can be something smaller than a mainstage show such as inviting them to lead a workshop, sit on a panel, or collaborate with an artist local to you.
This month we invite you to meet featured artist Kate Kamo McHugh. A dance and theatre artist from Kitchener, Kate has shared a short video with us about her current work in progress, Twenty Grains of Rice: Seeds of Reclamation, which is an exploration of her Japanese Canadian identity, incorporating a variety of artistic elements such as dance, improvised music, text and digital art. Follow the link below for this 3-minute introduction to the project!
Kate is part of Gathering Knowledge, Sharing Voices: Touring in the New Normal—a learning community for IBPOC dance and theatre artists. This project was designed to give participating artists a chance to build their knowledge and skills around touring and being presented.
