Shaunga Tagore: Creator & Artistic Director
Shaunga is a queer, prizmatic theatre artist, writer, speaker, furr-ever cat mama & Buffy enthusiast. And they weren’t kidding when they called her, well, a witch.
Shaunga is a Quantum Communicator, Death Doula, Time Keeper, Grief Bearer, Beauty Walker, and Open Heart Surgery Storyteller. Her dedications include illuminating multiverse perspectives on animal companionship, including soul agreements & lineage healing; and co-creating cultures and practices for queer/trans, BIPOC artists, healers and dreamers to bloom their ancestral artistry.
Otherworldly Giants is Shaunga’s baby (or bay-bay, as Moira Rose would say), so please enjoy thoroughly. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll get nerdy!
A deep bow of gratitude to the land of TKARONTO. Otherworldly Giants was birthed in collaboration with this land, and with great reverence to the Dish With One Spoon Wampum medicine that flows through everything and everyone who lives here. Much love to the caretakers of this land, and the various nations who have been/are earth stewards here, including: The Haudensaunee, Wendat, Anishnaabe, and Mississaugas of the Credit River.
Shaunga also sends her gratitude to the Metis, Cree, Lakota, Dakota, Nakota (caretakers of land where she grew up aka rural Manitoba/Winnipeg) and to the Adivasi, Dalit, Indigenous and Tribal communities of Bengal and India, the land where Shaunga’s family and ancestors are from.
Otherworldly Giants consists of, and is resourced by, a phenomenal, extraordinary team of ancestors, animals, guides, relatives, cheerleaders, investors and supporters in the spirit realm. May our healing be big, bright and sweet. May our dreams be fulfilled beyond our wildest imagination!
