Coming in 2022 -

WE TREATY PEOPLE – New series of plays for the ear premieres early 2022

Digital audio plays from a diverse group of artists exploring the question, “What does it mean to embrace all our relations?” Be provoked by this original fiction podcast and hear the stirring call to truth and reconciliation in our neighbourhoods, all across Canada. Captivating, unsettling, refreshing.

Nine audio dramas and nine artist interview episodes

Each episode will be accompanied by interactive suggestions for learning more or ways to engage the episode with friends. We will also host monthly Audience Talkbacks with artists and special guests over Zoom.

More about We Treaty People

As a company we are seeking to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Call To Action #83, to support good ways “for Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists to undertake collaborative projects and produce works that contribute to the reconciliation process.” We are mindful also of the Calls For Justice from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, particularly #6.1 which urges artists and arts producers to “take decolonizing approaches to their work” and to “support Indigenous people sharing their stories, from their perspectives, free of bias, discrimination, and false assumptions, and in a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive way.”

This project is made possible by a Digital Now Grant from Canada Council for the Arts.

*The participation of these Artists is arranged by permission of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association under the provisions of the Dance Opera Theatre Policy (DOT)
