Creative Residencies participant Monique Carr presents a multi-sensory performance which includes live shrub preparation and tastings as well as an audio soundtrack.
Free for walk-ins throughout the two hours.
Monique Carr is an observer, forager, and maker of shrubs- fermented syrups and wine in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her process involves being asked to pick fruits from properties where the fruit will otherwise go to waste and in doing so celebrating the richness of our harvest seasonally. With these fruits she makes cold-processed botanical syrups for soft drinks and cocktails. Her intention with this process is of storytelling, of capturing how symbiosis between flora and human, via fermentation, is synchronous to facilitating closeness between loved ones and community, elicited through memory, taste, and smell.
Her achievements as a maker include teaching a workshop for the New Mexico Fermentation festival “Mini Series” via Edible Magazine Santa Fe. She is an honorary of The Wheelright Museum’s “Better Wednesday” salon series. Monique has contributed an essay to the Canadian Association of Graduate Studies publication: Small Acts of Resilience for Living Within the Earth’s Carrying Capacity.
