Cecile Brass
May 7th 2011
The Re-Birthing Project

*Performance on Saturday May 7th @ 4:30pm*
A womb reconstructed on a large scale provides the foundation for a retelling of a personal narrative about the artist, the birth of her three sons, her culture, her family and her community. The work incorporates theatrical and audio art elements into the creation of a performance that, on the surface, tells the story of the birth of a child, but touches upon universal and shared experiences within our communities.



Cecile Brass is a member the Peepeekisis First Nation residing in Regina. Her involvement in the arts began by performing with the theatre troupe Red Tattoo Ensemble and dancing in international pow-wows as part of a dance company. After many stays in Europe, Brass lived in Taiwan for 5 years, where she became passionate about the universal Indigenous experience and the effects of colonization, an interest that has led her to study Political Science at the University of Regina. She gave her first performance art piece, “The Re-Birthing Project”, at the Sâkêwêwak Storytellers Festival in 2009.
