As a South Asian Canadian artist forged from the cracks of diaspora, the writing and performances curated center around agency and self-determination. In exploring race, gender, and colonialism with raw humanity, Shoker’s art builds on empowerment and restoration of self.
Some of you may have had the privilege of hearing the intergenerational story of being Canadian from the poetic perspective of Kiron Shoker at last night’s Chatroulette afterparty. Or perhaps you were privy to a different poetry performance from her repertoire of real stories. We felt the story. We experienced the story. We encourage you to do the same. You will be moved. You will see the depth of untold stories. You can follow her on Instagram @kiran.the.muse and check out her website (www.kiranthemuse.com) to see more of her work.
