Who Has Dominion?        Thurs. – Oct. 22

Studio 914

It’s a story of power, rules and the struggle to belong and it serves up a strong examination of how we live here in Canada. Dominion is the first play by poet Andrea Ledding and Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre is bringing it to the stage for its world premiere. The story follows two couples Jack and Marie-Phillippe who’ve just moved into a new home. Tatawaw and Nimitaw are the previous owners and are locked in the bathroom. Through their story, the audience is able to examine the history of Canada and the reserve system. The play is a great mix of the serious and the ridiculous and it all ends with the question of reconciliation. Tickets are $15-$20.
