Monique Mojica

Monique Mojica actor

Monique Mojica, from the Guna and Rappahannock nations, is passionately dedicated to theatrical practice as an act of healing, of reclaiming historical/cultural memory and of resistance. Spun directly from the family-web of New York’s Spiderwoman Theater, her first play Princess Pocahontas and the Blue Spots was produced in 1990.

Ms. Mojica founded Chocolate Woman Collective in 2007 to develop the play Chocolate Woman Dreams the Milky Way, a performance created by devising a dramaturgy specific to Guna cultural aesthetics, story narrative and literary structure.

She has taught Indigenous Theatre — theory, process and practice — at the University of Illinois, the Institute of American Indian Arts and McMaster University.

Upcoming projects include Side Show Freaks & Circus Injuns, with an illustrious team of Indigenous artists from diverse disciplines, co-written with Choctaw playwright LeAnne Howe, and the premiere of Kaha:wi Dance Theatre’s Re-Quickening, a new work by Santee Smith.
