Event Description

Muriel Miguel, two-spirit artist from the Kuna and Rappahannock Nations, is a founding member and the Artistic Director of Spiderwoman Theater, the longest running feminist Indigenous theatre company in North America. She is visiting Marlboro College to perform a portion of her play, Hot ‘n’ Soft, which explores two-spiritedness where she not only claims her sexual desire but does so without the shame of the “sexaphobic settler regime.”* In addition to Miguel’s work, this gathering will also include short readings of two-spirit artists, Kent Monkman and Waawate Fobister. There will also be time for conversations that connect to the reading and Miguel’s life long activism. Finally, we encourage participants to bring poetry or other writings that celebrate queer genders and desires.

About the Organizers

Marlboro College Undergraduate

Marlboro College is intentionally small, with a student-faculty ratio of 6:1. In addition to discussion-based classes, faculty members interact with students through one-to-one tutorials, Plan advising sessions, service-learning trips, and collaborative projects ranging from scholarly papers to films.

Freedom and Responsibility

Rather than follow a prescribed academic program, Marlboro students pursue a self-designed Plan of Concentration based on their intellectual interests that culminates in a major work of scholarship. Plans often integrate multiple disciplines - from mathematics and philosophy to dance, theater, and physics.

Community Governance

Marlboro students, faculty, and staff gather every four weeks for Town Meeting – a community forum modeled after traditional New England town meetings – where college-wide issues are discussed and brought to vote. Community members also serve on committees for everything from curriculum development and faculty hiring to public art and food services.
