Description

The tale 

Indrazaal lives on an island at the top of a mountain. One morning, following an enchanting dream, the child embarks on a quest to meet the ocean. But how will Indrazaal get off the mountain and across the island if they do not know the way? Through their encounters with flora and fauna, Indrazaal takes us on a journey to discover the island’s ecological beauty. With gentleness and poetry, we discover its strength, magic, and resilience.

The activity

Following the reading of her tale, Indrazaal et la quête de l’océan, Kama La Mackerel offers a creative visual arts workshop. Through drawing, painting, and collage, young participants will explore the links between their feelings and the ocean, insularity, territories, and local ecologies. The workshop provides a space for creative expression, personal reflection, and the sharing of ideas.

Biography

Kama La Mackerel

Kama La Mackerel (they) is a Mauritian-Canadian multilingual writer, visual artist, performer, educator and literary translator who believes in love, justice and self and collective empowerment. Their practice blurs the lines between traditional artistic disciplines to create hybrid aesthetic spaces from which decolonial and queer/trans vocabularies can emerge. With wholehearted engagement in ocean narratives, island sovereignty, transgender poetics and queer/trans spiritual histories, their body of work challenges colonial notions of time and space as these relate to history, power, language, subject formation and the body.
