WORLD PREMIERE by NATIVE EARTH PERFORMING ARTS
A BOUND TO CREATE THEATRE PRODUCTION
Isitwendam (An Understanding) by Meegwun Fairbrother (from CBC’s Burden of Truth, Murdoch Mysteries, APTN’s Mohawk Girls) is the story of a young man in search of a truth, whose journey leads to a discovery about the father he loathed and lost, and an awakening of himself and his generation.
A fusion of western and Indigenous storytelling that includes Ancient Indigenous Sign Language, drumming, dance, and song, this powerful, heart-wrenching, yet humorous theatrical production explores various perspectives of atrocity and the steps we all need to take to find Isitwendam.
