March 09, 2021
A tawny mix of Ojibwe/Swampy Cree and English/Irish, Lisa resides on the stolen, occupied, and unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm Nations (aka Vancouver). She is an award-winning, multi-hyphenate theatre artist and emerging scholar working across Turtle Island as a performer, play-maker, dramaturge, director, writer, curator, space-holder, and teacher.
Her work is rooted in Indigenous protocol, ontologies, and decolonial methodologies and is recognized nationally and internationally for its rigour and artistic excellence. She supplements her eclectic theatre practice and research with the delights of motherhood and the challenges of self-produced works. Lisa is an Associate Artist with Full Circle: First Nations Performance, a member of LMDA, and Playwright-in-Residence with Delinquent Theatre.
