New Brunswick Aboriginal artist Natalie Sappier will join the team at TNB to create a new multidisciplinary play exploring the voice of NB’s Wolastoqiyik/Maliseet people.
2 (2)(Fredericton) Theatre New Brunswick is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with New Brunswick Aboriginal artist Samaqani Cocachq-Natalie Sappier in the development of the new multidisciplinary work, Finding Wolastoq Voice. Conceived by Sappier, the play will combine music and dance and her distinct visual artistry to tell a story of her people.
“I always dreamed of sharing stories through movement, spoken word, music and collaborating with artists of many disciplines,” said Sappier. “Theatre allows me to create that world of storytelling.”
Sappier is an artist who expresses storytelling in many forms; visual, spoken word, chanting/singing and writing. In 2014 she was part of Theatre New Brunswick’s Aboriginal Artist’s Collective and assisted in the creation of the original production, The Eighth Fire.
