This year’s twenty-eighth Weesageechak Festival, presented by Native Earth Performing Arts, includes a range of artists from across Canada and the United States to develop and showcase contemporary indigenous theatre, dance and interdisciplinary creations for stage. The two-week event runs November 11-21 and showcases work by dance artist Lara Kramer (Tame), puppeteer and musician Jani Lauzon (Prophecy Fog), actress Michelle Thrush (Find Your Own Inner Elder) and playwright Kenneth T. Williams (In Care). In addition to these celebrated artists, Weesageechak features new work by emerging talent, such as Yolanda Bonnell, Brian Solomo and writers from the Animikiig Playwrights’ Program.
