she who lives on the road to war is an immersive installation and dance performance project created by Native choreographer Rosy Simas (Seneca) in response to our global loss and the collective need to grieve, to condole, and to come together in peace and reconciliation. It is both a physical space for rest and refuge, and a performative work of Native futurities that imagines a world of relational balance with nature and with each other.

she who lives on the road to war is being developed in and will premiere on the unceded territory of the Dakota in Mni Sota Makoce. This work is also being developed in relationship to Onöndowa’ga (Seneca) lands, other Haudenosaunee territories, and unceded Haudenosaunee lands in what is now called New York and Ontario. 

Estimated Artist Fee: $30,000/performance or week long residency.
