ABOUT
Vancouver Moving Theatre is pleased to announce the premiere, and National Tour, of Weaving Reconciliation: Our Way, a new play and cultural encounter that gives voice to those who have lived within Canada’s long shadow of colonialism.
Led and performed by indigenous artists, Weaving Reconciliation: Our Way brings to life the story of Old One and his journey to reconcile with himself, his family and his community.
Old One’s dream-like healing journey unfolds as he opens himself to his memories: of the impact of residential school on his family, the effect of intergenerational trauma on his daughter Nicole, the decline of the fishing industry and the resulting loss of a working life on the water.
With humour, games, songs and gifts of hope from Trickster and his Ancestors; and with unscripted cultural sharing by youth and cultural knowledge-keepers, Old One witnesses resilience and hope for the future.
Vancouver Moving Theatre is thrilled that this unique and timely production, proudly created on Coast Salish Territories (Vancouver/Downtown Eastside), will be shared with communities across Canada on a three week National Tour (Syilx Territory- En’owkin Centre, Penticton First Nation; Treaty 13 Territory- Native Earth Performing Arts, Toronto; and Treaty 1 Territory and Metis Homelands- Théâtre Cercle Molière, Winnipeg/St. Boniface).
