Indigo is a visual artist, writer, dancer and curator currently bouncing between Vancouver and Cape Town. Her creative practice explores human emotion, personal story and memory through a wide range of mediums and disciplines. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and seen on the streets in Canada, the United States, the UK, Western Europe, Russia and South Africa.
Born into a family of artists and activists, Indigo’s creative practice has always been multidisciplinary. Having grown up in Northern BC, she moved to the Lower Mainland in 2000 to study Contemporary Dance and English at Simon Fraser University. The years after graduation were spent working as a choreographer, performer and instructor in Canada and the United States, both independently and as a part of multiple companies and collectives.
Always intensely interested in collaboration, the last few years have seen Indigo actively seeking out new venues, methods and partners for creation and curation, at home and abroad. One of the core tenets of her practice lies in connecting communities in a creative way to facilitate positive social change, on a local, national and international level. She believes in nurturing a culture of empowerment, in which people of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to find unique ways to express their voice in today’s society, to think critically about the world around them and discover creative and collaborative solutions to the problems faced by themselves and their peers. To this end, Indigo continues to work at a grassroots level with artists and communities all over the world, using her personal and professional network to assist individuals and organizations in reaching their goals. She considers herself very fortunate to have been given the skills, education and opportunities at my disposal, and with that she feel a responsibility to give back, to help others to exceed their own expectations.
