Andy Sawyer is a performer based in Tio’tia’ke (Montreal). She writes and tells stories, sings songs, and listens to her body. Her practice evolves around world-building, drawing from personal experience, science-fiction, gender theory, and psychology. As an adoptee, she is interested in redefining notions of family and kinship through articulating new language around belonging, emotional responsibility (radical honesty), boundaries, and what we owe to ourselves and to each other. As a trans artist, she approaches creation through a spiritual, pleasure-filled, joy-seeking embodiment practice.
She is committed to the inner journeys of unlearning white supremacy and patriarchy while seeking out new (and old) forms of living in relationship with the land and with each other.
