Full Circle: First Nations Performance’s Virtual Feast programming continues with a performance by Tawahum. This event was originally to stream Wednesday, August 26th, but we have pushed the stream back one day.
Łutselk’e Dene, Plains Cree, Two-Spirit, Nonbinary poet, Tawahum Bige resides on unceded Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish territory. Since 2017, Tawahum has performed at over 40 different venues from the west coast to Ontario. In Aries-sun fashion, Tawahum completed the first-ever Indigenous Spoken Word residency at the Banff Centre in 2018 while completing their BA in Creative Writing from KPU in 2019. Featured in over 10 lit-journals including Prairie Fire, Contemporary Verse 2, Grain Magazine and EVENT Magazine, Art-poet Tawahum’s Scorpio-moon-ass poetry and music makes vulnerable the process of growing, resisting and being a hopeless sadboy on occupied Turtle Island. They’ve performed for festivals with their poetry at Talking Stick, Koksilah, Magnetic North, Verses Festival of Spoken Word, and Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. For Tawahum, beyond the festival, stage and page is the front-line, where their main inspiration comes from, and where they’ve hit the megaphone and mic to inspire their fellow warriors, whether at a rally, fundraiser, sacred fire or the siege outside the gates of Kinder Morgan in Burnaby.
VirtualFeast.ca is a collaborative project of BC Indigenous arts presenters including 2 Rivers Remix Society, Savage Production Society, Full Circle: First Nations’ Performance, and the Vine Arts Festival
Full Circle: First Nations Performance’s music programming is supported by funding from Creative BC, FACTOR, and SoundOn.
