Closing Concert: Theory of Ice


The album Theory of Ice (2021) is a powerful act of world-building and creative sovereignty by Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg-writer, scholar, and musician Leanne Betasamosake Simpson. Leanne has been widely recognized as one of the most compelling Indigenous voices of her generation. During this evening, Leanne, together with Nick Ferrio on guitar, will share her musical storytelling. The album departs from Leanne’s poetic inquiries into our relationship with water, and her cover of Willie Dunn’s “I Pity the Country” (1971). Listen to the album here. The evening is moderated by Chihiro Geuzebroek. With subtle calls for revolution, Theory of Ice invites you to reimagine “your relationship to the people and places that keep you alive”.
