How do we take what is best about contemporary Canadian theatre creation and work toward honoring 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 Affairs 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.
