EMILIE MONNET

Intergrating theatre, performance art and technology, Émilie Monnet’s artistic practice explores themes of identity, memory, co-existence and transformation. Her creations draw on the symbolic of dreams and mythology—personal and collective—to tell stories that question today’s world. In 2016, Émilie founded Indigenous Contemporary Scene (ICS), a critical and artistic manifestation of live-arts by indigenous artists. A small version of ICS was organized in Buenos Aires in March 2017 and brought together indigenous artists from Quebec and Argentina. Émilie’s heritage is Anishnaabe and French, and she lives in Montreal. Her artistic engagement is inspired by years of social activism with indigenous organizations in Canada and Latin America as well as community art projects with incarcerated women and Aboriginal youth.
