Read Natércia's Statement
My name is Natercia Napoleao (she/her) and I’m a Brazilian immigrant/settler and theatre artist based in Alberta. I have been a part of the community in amiskwaciwaskahikan, Treaty 6 Territory, colonially known as Edmonton for the past 18 years, and a CAEA member since 2008.
In 2021, I believe artists are political creatures with agency in their practice. I thrive in an atmosphere that invites socially relevant conversation, and in my own community, I have been working toward creating an atmosphere of social conscience. In this spirit, I am running to represent the Alberta North/N.W.T. region in our CAEA Council, under the recommendation of Ian Leung (outgoing rep) and Amy DeFelice.
Throughout my career, I have received the encouraging feedback that I have a natural affinity for endeavours that bring people closer together. This inspires my work in shaping equitable policies in the industry, embracing new production and creation modalities, and discovering new meanings in our theatre rituals. I am invested in the growth of my community.
As a CAEA representative, I look forward to collaborating with my community and Council members, joining committees and developing policies that will make a difference in our day-to-day lives as professional theatre artists.
