Aboriginal performance artist Margo Kane to receive honorary degree from UFV – UFV

by ahnationtalk on June 10, 2015406 Views

Movement and expression have defined Margo Kane for more than 40 years during an accomplished professional performance career.

You can’t categorize her, and you can’t keep her still.

A seemingly endless well of perpetual energy helps this dynamo tell her own story, express herself as an artist, and facilitate the sharing of many stories reflective of the Aboriginal experience in Canada.

For her visionary leadership and innovation in the performing arts, Kane is receiving an Honorary Doctor of Letters degree from the University of the Fraser Valley on June 12 at 9 am. The public is welcome to attend the Convocation ceremony at the Abbotsford Centre where she will receive her degree.

Kane is an Aboriginal storyteller, dancer, singer, animator, video and installation artist, producer, director, writer, and teacher who has been active on the Canadian cultural scene for more than four decades. She is the founder and Artistic Managing Director of Full Circle: First Nations Performance. Her one-woman show Moonlodge is considered a classic in the Aboriginal theatre genre. She runs the annual Talking Stick Festival in Vancouver. As artistic director of Spirit Song Native Theatre, a performing arts program launched in Vancouver in the 1980s, she has developed performances based on stories and legends of Aboriginal communities in the region as well as stories from the real lives of her students. Kane has also used theatre as a community development tool in her role as a facilitator with the National Native Role Model program.
