Performance is ephemeral.  At the best of times all we can take away from the experience is an intangible feeling that we have somehow been changed, the memory of a piece of magic that moved us, and sometimes a really cool program.  Here’s your chance to hold something in your hand, and our chance to give you lasting exposure to our very best artists, our very deepest thinkers.  Check out merchandise below to take home a piece of the action.  All items available online, through the office or at performances.

alt ALMIGHTY VOICE & HIS WIFEby Daniel David MosesA young couple woo and wed, but they’re Cree and it’s 1895, the first generation after the Riel Rebellion, and it’s suddenly hard for the people who followed the buffalo to live happily ever after. What are they going to do? It’s still a bit early to go into show business.

Almighty Voice and His Wife shakes up a familiar story from the Saskatchewan frontier, reimagining it from the postmodern late twentieth century. The “renegade Indian story” transforms into both an eloquent tale of tragic love and an often hilarious, fully theatrical exorcism of the hurts of history.

alt ANNIE MAE’S MOVEMENTby Yvette NolanAnnie Mae’s Movement explores what it must have been like to be Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, a woman in a man’s movement, a Canadian in America, an Aboriginal in a white-dominant culture at a time when it felt like we could really change the world. Dying under mysterious circumstances, it is still unclear as to what really happened to Anna Mae back in the late 70s. Instead of recounting cold facts, this play looks for the truth from examining the life and death of this remarkable Aboriginal woman; that we cannot know the consequences of our actions; that we live on in the work that we do and the people we affect long after we have passed from this world. book: $15.00+ HST, S&H
