Performing Land: Towards an Indigenous Future
Date & Time
Friday, October 29, 2021, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Raven Chacon Cannupa Hanska Luger

Cannupa Hanska Luger and Raven Chacon work outside of conventional genres to envision a future where societies live in true reverence and acknowledgement of the land. In 2015, as part of the Postcommodity collective, Chacon helped realize Repellent Fence, a large-scale ephemeral installation along the US-Mexico border. The following year at Standing Rock Indian Reservation, Luger organized Mirror Shield Project, a performative action to support the efforts of the water protectors, and Chacon began work on an experimental sonic score in response to the place and the people he encountered there. In 2020 Luger directed and Chacon composed the music for Sweet Land, an opera that reimagined narratives surrounding the colonial founding of America and westward expansion.
