Native Studies 101 Thurs. – Mar. 14
A Dakota, a Dene, a Cree and a Metis walk into a Native Studies class being taught by a settler professor… It sounds like the opening to a great joke and it’s the premise behind Dakota Ray Hebert’s play Native Studies 101. The show is all about the fact that many Indigenous people don’t learn about their own culture from Indigenous people. The play was commissioned by Gordon Tootoosis Nīkānīwin Theatre for it’s Circle of Voices program. This is a theatre school for aspiring artists. The show is a great mix of comedy and social commentary. Tickets are $15 – $20.

SCUM: A Manifesto Thurs. – Mar. 17
It’s a look at feminism then and now through the eyes of a radical who tried to kill Andy Warhol. SCUM: A Manifesto has been a labour of love for S.E Grummet since the show toured the Fringe Festival circuit in 2016. It’s been workshopped and performed in the following years. The performance centres around Valerie Solanas who in 1967 wrote a manifesto to overthrow the government and kill all men. The show also looks at two modern day feminists and how they define themselves after reading the manifesto. This show does have a nudity warning and it’s definitely a provocative play. Tickets are $22 – $25.
