Artist. Activator. Aunty. Zoey Roy is a rebel with a cause.
A humorous presenter and a luminous storyteller, Zoey offers practical wisdom for living well amongst the violence of settler colonialism. A lover of words, having fun and synthesizing knowledge, she has spent most of her life traveling the globe sharing her gift of gab through performances, keynote presentations and workshops. Zoey is a hip hop inspired poet with an insatiable appetite for learning and growing. Nehithaw-Dené and Michif, Zoey is a citizen of Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation in Northern Saskatchewan and is based in Kingston ON where she lives with her partner.
Kris is a theatre artist, a Regina monologue, a brown kid grateful for the village who raises her. She is privileged to build relationships in artful ways (Curtain Razors, Fadadance, Artesian, Globe Theatre, Common Weal).
Kris performs in other people’s work (Bad Blood, Carmen Angel), makes her own work (What Kind of Brown Are You, Burnt Sienna), and moments before the pandemic, she was humbled by life-inspiring experiences (Reasonable Doubt).
Through the pandemic & onward, Kris continues… in film (Donkeyhead, Karma Films / Agam Darshi), in parks (The Other Side of the River, Sum Theatre), on TV (ZARQA, CBC Gem), onstage (Making Spirits Bright – Globe Theatre) and in creation (Acknowledging).
