The 28th annual Weesageechak Begins to Dance festival presents new works and works in development by Indigenous performing artists.
Over two weeks in November, Weesageechak brings together emerging, mid-career and established artists to develop and showcase contemporary Indigenous theatre, dance and interdisciplinary creations for stage. The festival provides a platform that fosters mentorship through the exchange of skills and knowledge while simultaneously celebrating contemporary Indigenous performance through readings, workshops and productions. Festival audiences gain insight into the creation process and get a unique glimpse of new Indigenous works from around the world.
Weesageechak 28 will include exciting and innovative works by artists such as Yolanda Bonnell, Jani Lauzon, Lara Kramer, Brian Solomon, Michelle Thrush, Kenneth T. Williams, Animikiig playwrights, and many more!
