Canadian playwright, director, and dramaturg, Yvette Nolan will speak about the history of Indigenous theatre in Canada.
In the forty years since James Buller kickstarted an Indigenous theatre in this country currently called Canada, Indigenous theatre makers have produced over 500 theatre pieces for the stage. However Canadians may only know of “The Rez Sisters”, and perhaps one or two more. From “Jessica” to “Moonlodge” to “Okinum”, from “Someday” to “Where the Blood Mixes” to “Bearing”, Nolan will address the work of the Indigenous theatre makers who have stood on the shoulders of those who came before.
- When: 12:45 p.m. to 2 p.m.
- Where: University of Victoria Phoenix Theatre, 3800 Finnerty Road
