As we’re leading up to this year’s Talking Stick Festival, Kwèykw`áystawy (meaning “speaking with one another”), we want you to know about some of our exciting Headliners.

AMoonlodgePoster-FEB1-JPEG72n Urban Ink Production, presented in partnership with the Talking Stick Festival.

Moonlodge tells the story of a young Aboriginal woman named Agnes. Child Welfare government services removed Agnes from her home. She grows up in a series of foster homes, away from the warmth and support of her family and her cultural community. In the 1960s she joins many others hitchhiking across America, and in that journey she discovers the authentic voice inside her that had been silenced, but never lost.

Moonlodge is a piece written by our own Margo Kane. Full Circle comes full circle bringing back this story to Vancouver. For the first time, a new actor, Paula-Jean Prudat, will perform Moonlodge.

Greed/REsolve is a a collaborative evening of two dance works, created by Byron Chief-Moon and Circadia-Indigena’s Artistic Director, JP Longboat. Greed is about today’s exploitative stock market and the effects of exploitation and corporate self-indulgence. REsolve addresses de-colonization of both self and homeland through an awakening of
the individual confronting an authoritarian system, and implores all peoples to take control of their own destiny by challenging economic slavery and psychological bondage.
