Where the Horizon meets the Earth
Virginia Grise will discuss the evolution of her career as a theatre artist, from blu to her most current project, Riding the Currents of the Wilding Wind, inspired by Helena María Viramontes’ epic novel Their Dogs Came with Them. The talk will include excerpts of her work and her methodological and artistic practices for creating ecologies of care in the face of state violence, how we dream when our communities are under attack, how we create spaces for movement, joy and celebration amidst all of it – to study together and think together, work and collaborate together, imagine and create together.

Her published work includes Your Healing is Killing Me, blu, and The Panza Monologues. In addition to plays, she has created an interdisciplinary body of work in multimedia performance, dance theater, performance installations, guerilla theater, site specific interventions, and community gatherings.
