NIGHTWOOD THEATRE AND NATIVE EARTH PERFORMING ARTS PRESENT: A Digital Experience Curated by New Harlem Productions
Embodying Power and Place

Launching Saturday, March 27, 2021 and available until Sunday, April 11, 2021.
Register for free at www.embodyingpowerandplace.com to view all 12 works.

In 2019, the federal commission on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls released their final report, Reclaiming Power and Place. In 2020 over a dozen artists from a wide range of disciplines were commissioned by New Harlem Productions to read and respond to specific chapters of the report. This digital iteration of Embodying Power and Place offers twelve audio-visual works that seek to honour the missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, Trans, and Two-Spirit people, and strives to create a sacred space in which to reflect, heal, and find renewed hope.
