Dates: February 1 and 2, 2020
Indigenous Youth (16 - 25) and Indigenous Women will have the opportunity to participate in a storytelling workshop led by Yolanda Bonnell. The workshop includes warm ups and discovering the different ways a story can be told (body/movement, writing, song, or combination). Participants will find the path that suits them best and will create a 5-minute piece of theatre that will tell a specific creation story.
Participants will then have the opportunity to perform their piece in front of an audience as a prologue to Yolanda’s performance of bug at Theatre Passe Muraille. This is not mandatory. It’s important that participants feel comfortable and that the primary goal is that they are gaining new theatrical/storytelling skills. Participants can also attend the performance with family/friends as audience members.
The workshop is FREE to participate (note the capacity is 10 participants, registering in advance is recommended). Light snacks and workshop materials will be provided. All trans, non-binary and 2 Spirit folks are welcome.
The workshop will be held at:
Cahoots Theatre - 388 Queen St E Unit 3
