ZOM-FAM is a solo performance by Kama La Mackerel that combines poetry, storytelling and dance. At once personal and political, ZOM-FAM (meaning “man-woman” in Mauritian Creole) narrates the story of a gender-creative child growing up in the 80s and 90s on the plantation island of Mauritius. Multiply-voiced and imbued with complex storytelling, ZOM-FAM interweaves narratives that bring together ancestral voices, femme tongues, broken colonial languages and a tender queer subjectivity, all of which are grappling with the legacy of plantation servitude. Kama La Mackerel is a multi-disciplinary artist, writer, educator and cultural mediator from Mauritius who lives and loves in tio’tia:ke (Montréal), Canada.
Presented April 17 to 19 as part of MAI’s Sonic & Syllable series
