Métis multidisciplinary artist Moe Clark fuses performance narrative with traditions of circle singing and spoken word. With a background in voice, spoken word, and visual arts, she employs a looping pedal to add multi-layered vocal structures to her performance. Her poetic songs resonate with the power to heal, to celebrate spirit and to connect with authentic purpose. Centred around talking circle and indigenous teachings, Moe also works as a community educator to facilitate voice, writing and spoken word workshops in high schools and local communities to promote literacy and creative expression. Her professional and educational work have been disseminated locally and internationally, and merges writing, spoken word and contemporary performance.
