MYSEUM INTERSECTIONS 2021

Akanzyla

Akanzyla is an Indian climate refugee living in T’karonto on Turtle Island in 2050. She works as a spiritual caretaker of online and offline communities and a creative biologist with Almanac Cooperative specializing in algae cultivation and conversion, all while co-parenting three children conceived through hybridized surrogacy as part of a nurture pod.

In this 7-hour live durational performance, you are invited into her apartment to witness a work day from a possible future where feminine principles such as interspecies communication, ancestral intelligence, ecological healing, care and cooperation reign. Audience members will be invited to participate in collective work throughout the day, sensing into what futures of how we labour are available to us.

This work is informed by Memory Work, a foresight research project on the future of womxn’s work led by FromLater and At The Moment (ATM).
