A Digital Dream of an Indigiqueer Utopia
RESIST/REVIVE/REPLENISH is a digital showcase celebrating Indigenous Queer embodied joy, creativity, and self-expression. Curated and Directed by Kelsey Kanatan Wavey, it features 3 stunning and unique performances by DJ OShow, Lynx Chase and Nimkish. The sessions were filmed in collaboration with the performers and an all Indigenous-led production team in October 2021 at KW Studios in Vancouver, BC.
RESIST/REVIVE/REPLENISH runs 30 minutes.
In June, 2023 RRR was co-presented with UpintheAir Theatre during the rEvolver Festival, as part of INDIGENOUS EMERGENCE: TRIPLE FEATURE & COMMUNITY GATHERING, a celebration of the work of emerging and re-emerging Indigenous artists. The event featured three film and performance works centering Indigenous voices and perspectives, touching on everything from the power of queer Indigenous joy, to the absurdity of capitalism, to the satisfaction of smashing a piñata pope to bits.
