Timothy White Eagle and the Violet Triangle: The Indigo Room

The Indigo Room is an immersive ritualistic theater and installation work by artist Timothy White Eagle and his team of collaborators, The Violet Triangle – Paul Budraitis, HATLO, and John Kendall Wilson. This new work, rooted in ritual theater, integrates avant-garde carnival and experimental sound design with compelling storytelling to explore one of the oldest and most universal myths: a hero being swallowed alive and then returned transformed. The artists use this ancient story to ponder what it means to be living in our contemporary moment through isolation and longing for community.


TIMOTHY WHITE EAGLE is a mixed-race artist of indigenous and European heritage. His art practice rises from a decades-long exploration of traditional ritual and embodiment practice. He crafts experiences, spaces, and objects designed to heal. His preferred mediums include objects, photography, performance, and installed space. His work has been presented on three continents. His most recent performance, The Indigo Room, premiered in NYC and Seattle, then was presented in the Public Theater’s UtR festival and is currently touring nationally.


He won the Western Artist Alliance/Advancing Indigenous Performance Launch Pad award in 2019. He Has done art residencies at On the Boards, TownHall, and La Mama Etc NYC. He has received grant support from the Seattle Office of Arts, 4 Culture, and 2023 received a MAP Fund award for the creation of his upcoming work “Indian School” Timothy collaborated with and toured internationally with MacArthur Genius Taylor Mac on his Pulitzer Prize finalist “A 24 Decade History…” and “Taylor Mac’s Holiday Sauce.”
