Métis multidisciplinary artist Moe Clark is a nomadic songbird with wings woven from circle singing and spoken word. Mistress of the looping pedal, she creates sonic landscapes of layered voice. She facilitates creative workshops in communities with a basis for deepening embodiment and awareness with personal and collective expression. Her work as an artistic producer stems from her desire to find intersections for collaborations: intercultural, intergenerational and interdisciplinary in nature.
Moe has two albums of words and music, a bilingual book of poetry and multiple music + poetry videos. In 2015 She codirected Transcestral; a musical exchange between Indigenous musical traditions of Pow Wow, drum song and throat singing with Gnawa and Sufi trance musicians (First Peoples Festival). In 2013 she directed the 10th Annual Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Montreal, highlighting Indigenous languages and in 2011 she cocreated the award winningBird Messengers performance with Émilie Monnet. In 2015 her êhiyawêwin (Plains Cree) lullaby “nitahkôtân” won best music video at ImagiNative Film Festival. As a public speaker she is a soughtafter presenter with feature talks at TedXMontreal (May 2012) and the Olympic Summer Games in London, U.K. (July 2012).
