Event Details

In this hypnotic monologue performance, Émilie Monnet interprets a recurring dream and transmits a message of empowerment to the audience. In Anishinaabemowin, the word “okinum” means “dam,” and the narrative of Monnet’s dream involves a giant beaver; the symbolism is rooted in Anishinaabe worldview and far-reaching in its significance.

Making creative use of live sound and visual storytelling techniques, Okinum is a vivid and immersive experience. No small factor in its power is the ambient, atmospheric live score by Jackie Gallant; it underscores Monnet’s words and gestures superbly. Mixing three languages–English, French and Anishinaabemowin–Monnet captivates our attention, demands understanding and grants catharsis.
