in partnership with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre
Monday, August 28th, 2017
Native Earth Performing Arts’ annual Weesageechak Begins to Dance festival is a celebration of new works and works-in-development produced by Native Earth Performing Arts, Canada’s oldest professional Indigenous theatre company.
For our 30th anniversary festival, we are once again proudly partnering with Buddies in Bad Times Theatre to present the 2-Spirit Cabaret, part of Weesageechak Begins to Dance.
2-spirit, trans and queer-identified Indigenous artists are encouraged to apply with short (5-10 minute) works. Both presentations and works-in-development will be considered this year, with any desired development support to be discussed with selected artists individually. More About Weesageechak 30
