yödoishëndahgwa (a place for rest)

yödoishëndahgwa’ (a place for rest) is an installation and performance work by Rosy Simas to heal seven generations of ancestors and seven generations yet to be born.


Rosy Simas (Seneca, Heron Clan) is a transdisciplinary and dance artist who has historically presented her work as a choreographer.

Simas’ projects merge movement with media, sound, and objects for stage and installation. She unites cultural concepts and images with scientific and philosophical theories to create work that is literal, abstract, and metaphoric. Her work weaves themes of personal and collective identity with family, sovereignty, equality, and healing. She creates dance work with a team of Native, BIPOC and LGBTQIA artists, driven by movement-vocabularies developed through deep listening. Simas is a recipient of a Dance/USA Fellowship, Joyce Award from The Joyce Foundation, McKnight Fellowship for Choreography, Guggenheim Creative Arts Fellowship, First People Fund Fellowship, and a Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Fellowship. Her dance works include Weave, Skin(s) and We Wait In The Darkness which have toured Turtle Island and France with the support of NEFA National Dance Project, MAP Fund, and National Performance Network. In August 2021, Simas will present yödoishëndahgwa’geh (a place for rest) at All My Relations Arts in Minneapolis.

Through Sorry I Missed Your Show, our screening and discussion series, diverse artists offer in-depth insight into their creative process.
