I Call Myself Princess: The Story of Tsianina Redfeather

I Call Myself Princess: The Story of Tsianina Redfeather
by Jani Lauzon with direction & dramaturgy by Ruth Madoc-Jones

“It has been a breathtaking ride researching this work. I call it an opera within a play. And while things have changed there are so many things that have not. Especially our relationship to identity and popular culture, the Opera based on Tsianina’s life being the pop culture of the time. This wouldn’t be happening without the generosity of many.” Jani Lauzon
