“Offerings to the island body and water memory”

“Offerings to the island body and water memory”

Wednesday, April 10th 5:30 – 7:00pm.This event is open to the public. Location update coming soon.

In this ritual-performance, Mauritian-Canadian poet and performer Kama La Mackerel (they/them) invokes water memories: this fluidity that lives in us, that is present around us, that transforms and reshapes itself but never disappears. Water, in all its forms, in all of its courses, in all of its bodies, carries history: ecological, geological, mineral, ancestral tellings.

*Undergraduate and graduate students are also invited to a closed session on Thursday, Apr 11, from 11:00 – 12:30p with Kama La Mackerel to discuss their poetry collection, Zom Fam, and converse about their practice as a poet, performer, translator, and curator. Lunch will be provided. Interested students should email Dr. Neelofer Qadir at n_qadir@uncg.edu to add their name to the participants list.
