Socrates: The Mush Hole
Nov 16, 2018, 7:00PM to 8:00PM
Black Box Theatre, LR Wilson
This Indigenous-led production uses testimonials, survivor writings and residential school records to acknowledge the lives and spirits of survivors of the Mohawk Institute residential school. The Mush Hole re-creates experiences in three eras of the School: 1884, 1922 & 1950. This performance allows audiences to feel and experience the emotional and spiritual impact of Canada’s history with the Indian Residential School system. The Mush Hole educates the broader public on the impacts of this history and ensures the legacy of the survivors will continue to spread truth and uphold justice.

Conceived by acclaimed Six Nations artist, dancer and director Santee Smith, in collaboration with Onkwehon:wen artists Julianne Blackbird, Montana Summers, Semiah Smith, and Brandon A. Oakes, The Mush Hole addresses intergenerational trauma, but above all it’s about the resilience of Indigenous peoples.
Santee Smith will also be an Artist-In-Residence in the Indigenous Studies Program at McMaster University, hosting a workshop series during Fall 2018. This series will centre Indigenous processes and knowledges in an experiential “on your feet” approach aimed at activating creativity, body and spatial awareness, cultural performative practices and critical response.
Presented in partnership with Indigenous Studies Program.
