As Native Earth enters it’s 30th year of professional contemporary Indigenous theatre, we are excited to present the annual Weesageechak Begins to Dance Festival in our new theatre, Aki Studio at Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park.
Besides being our 25th year of showcasing exciting new work from Indigenous artists across Turtle Island, this year’s festival will see alluring new works by Vancouver-based dancer/choreographer Daina Ashbee, a searing satire by new playwright Andréa Ledding, a provocative comedic drama by Drew Hayden Taylor and an enchanting collaboration by South Asian Canadian Sharada K. Eswar and Cree artist Rosary Spence.
We spark with eagerness and we know you do too to see the work from the participants of our Animikiig and Thundering Voices program. This festival is not to be missed.
