The University of Alberta is hosting Theatre for Living’s (Vancouver, BC) forum theatre production of šxʷʔam̓ət (home). This special, interactive performance offers an opportunity to explore and examine shifts in perceptions and behaviours required for true and meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada.
“Created and performed by a mixed Indigenous and non-Indigenous cast and production team, šxʷʔam̓ət (home) weaves together stories based on real life, and challenges us to make reconciliation real and honourable.” // šx ʔam̓ət (home) will invite audiences to change the patterns of behaviour inside characters who are struggling with these issues – patterns that audience members recognize inside themselves – and rehearse true reconciliation. – theatreforliving.com/present_work/sxwPamet/original_project.html
The cast began their 20-community tour, and the response has been fantastic!
**A percentage of complimentary tickets have been set aside for those unable to afford to purchase tickets**
Doors will open 1 hour before the show to allow audience members to enjoy a Community Resource Information Fair.
