I am a storyteller and a story-sharer. For me, this means I listen to stories as much as I tell them. As a co-director of Staging Our Histories, and as a freelance writer, this is a large part of what I do. I look for stories that show how our pasts are mingled with our presents – stories that tug at you in ways that you cannot forget.
My training is in public history (Carleton University, 2014) and in kathak dance (with Mridula Rao). My own storytelling and scholarship endeavours to bring these two practices together by finding histories in moving bodies and dance repertoires. My work exists in-between many contexts, including performance and public history, and Canada and India. I tell stories that leverage the privilege inherent in my in-betweenness to expand singular, exclusionary narratives.
