Listening – Bridging Indigenous and Settler Dramaturgy: Artist in Residence Event

How do we take what is best about contemporary Canadian theatre creation and work toward honouring ancient practices grown from Indigenous Knowledge? What are the challenges when the settler goal-based achievement narrative meets the woven stories of Indigenous land-based dramaturgy? Does this become a question of bridging or blending? These are central questions to be investigated in a live-stream talking circle moderated by CBU’s Associate Vice President, Indigenous Initiatives and Unama’ki College, Stephen Augustine. Participants include Indigenous scholars and theatre-practitioners Jill Carter and Floyd Favel Starr, dramaturge Paula Dankert, theatre practitioners Zach Running Coyote and Daniel MacIvor.
