Brit’s Picks June 9 – 16

We Treaty People                 



Saskatoon’s Burnt Thicket Theatre presents Curtis Peeteetuce’s Remnace and its companion artists’ interview as part of the We Treaty People performance series. Peeteetuce is one of the artists commissioned to create a play that answers “What does it mean to be Treaty People and embrace all our relations?”. His answer was to create a world set in a dystopian future on a failing space Station 6. The story is the final thoughts from Commander Trem Lylin and his crew as they reflect on the current state of humanity. You can listen to the 5 productions already released and keep up with the 18 episodes that will be launched throughout this year for free.
