Finding Wolastoq Voice

By Natalie Sappier

A powerful dance/theatre hybrid performance that explores the personal discovery, identity and culture of a young Wolastoqiyik woman awakened by the voices of her ancestors.

Natalie Sappier made her playwriting debut with Finding Wolastoq Voice. As the final professional production of our 2017-2018 season, the play received a two week run in Fredericton and toured the province before wrapping up with a three show run at Native Earth Performing Arts in Toronto. It has since been performed at Manitoba’s Prairie Theater Exchange and continues to gain momentum as one of the most relevant and moving works of modern Indigenous theatre.
