Signal Theatre in residency at The Banff Theatre Playwright’s Colony!

Signal Artistic Director and playwright Michael Greyeyes will re-examine his dance-theatre piece Nôhkom in collaboration with director Yvette Nolan and assistant director Falen Johnson. Combining text and dance, Nôhkom moves through complex moments in the life of the author’s father to examine the history of Canada’s Indian Residential school system. Nôhkom is a portrait of resilience and a testament to the potential of forgiveness. Originally premiered at The Banff Centre in 2013, this residency is an opportunity for Michael to return to the text of the piece, while maintaining the interdisciplinary process that generated its choreography and staging.

crees.in.the.caribbean

Crees in the Carribean by Drew Hayden Taylor at Saskatchewan Native Theatre Company, running at La Troupe Du Jour in Saskatoon from May 7 – 17th.

Evie and Cecil are celebrating their 35 wedding anniversary. As a present, their grown children decide to send them to a fabulous resort in Mexico as a second honeymoon. The only problem is, neither have ever been out of the country, let alone their Cree community. There is also the matter of Cecil’s suspicions that there might be more behind this trip then he has been told. The past, present and future all pay the couple a visit as they deal with the sun, the sand and the spicy food.

Tickets:Adults $25.00, Students/Seniors $23.00
Box Office: 306-667-1221, latroupedujour.ca

 Gudirr Gudirr, Marrugeku’s Dalisa...

gudirr.gudirr

Harbourfront Centre presents Gudirr Gudirr by Marrugeku’s Dalisa Pigram, May 6-9!

In this intimate performance, Marrugeku’s Dalisa Pigram, in collaboration with former Les Ballets C de la B choreographer Koen Augustijnen and visual artist Vernon Ah Kee, has threaded the physicality of contemporary dance through her vision of the rapid change affecting her land and its people as well as her own Asian-Indigenous identity. Her resilience and intelligence produce a performance language that articulates the essence of the precarious global moment.

Marrugeku creates innovative intercultural dance theatre from the northwest Australian experience, where desert meets sea, Australia meets Asia, and where cultures twine, fuse and morph. The company is currently under the artistic direction of Dalisa Pigram and Rachael Swain.

Red Sky Performance is taking booking for Mistatim for the 14-15 and 15-16 seasons from February 1 to May 30th.

Mistatim is a coming of age story about the truest of friendships. A wooden fence is all that separates Calvin’s ranch and Speck’s reservation, but in many ways they are worlds apart.

An unlikely friendship is struck when Calvin attempts to “break” the only horse no one else can tame in order to prove himself to his father. Speck, who is also struggling to find her place in her family, discovers her incredible gift to communicate with horses. Working together to rein in the wild horse, Calvin and Speck learn to communicate with one another across the divide of their own cultures.

For Bookings and Information please contact:

Tel: (416) 585-9969
