Qwo-Li Driskill's "Shaking Our Shells"
Part of Pangea World Theater's INDIGENOUS VOICES SERIES*, Co-Presented by Intermedia Arts

"Shaking Our Shells: Stories from On the Wings of Wadaduga" is an ongoing historiographical performance project that focuses on revising archived and embodied Cherokee Two-Spirit/GLBTQ memories. Drawing on archival research and interviews, this one-person performance shares stories from Cherokee cultural memory about 2 GLBTQ people within the context of larger tactics for decolonization and continuance.

Qwo-Li Driskill is a Cherokee Two-Spirit/Queer writer, scholar, educator, activist, and performer also of African, Irish, Lenape, Lumbee, and Osage ascent. S/he is the author of Walking with Ghosts: Poems and the co-editor of Queer Indigenous Studies: Critical Inverventions is Theory, Politics, and Literature and Sovereign Erotics: A Collection of Two-Spirit Literature. Qwo-Li grew up in rural Colorado and earned a PhD in Rhetoric & Writing at Michigan State University in 2008. An activist since the early 90s, Qwo-Li is committed to radical social transformation and intersectional politics. Hir activism is deeply rooted in and informed by Native decolonization movements, Queer/Trans/GLBT communities of color, feminisms, poor/working-class politics, and (dis)ability movements. Qwo-Li's work as a poet, performer, scholar, and educator is entwined with struggles for social justice and healing.

*The Indigenous Voices Series was created in 2001 to explore issues in the indigenous agenda, focusing not only on internal details but also the wider global and national contexts through the medium of theater and performance art. In this series, local, national, and international artists raise issues that affect their community  issues of identity, rights, struggles, and experiences.

Both performances will be followed by a post-show discussion with the artist.
