I have the huge privilege to be working with the incredible Jani Lauzon on her new project I Call Myself Princess: The Story of Tsianina Redfeather. We will be presenting some of it for Native Earth‘s Weesageechak Begins to Dance 26, a festival of new Aboriginal plays in development.

The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.
I love this!
Awful event beautifully remembered. Check out this gorgeous monument.
