GLOBAL INDIGENOUS VOICES
Thursday, June 13, 2019 Start time: 7:00 pm
Venue: British Library
Discover distinctive new ideas and stories from Indigenous writers from around the world.
Global Voices is a theatre project working with international playwrights to share new rehearsed readings. Curated by Mohegan theatre-maker Madeline Sayet, the evening features excerpts from five plays by Indigenous writers from around the world, and a post-performance discussion about the plays and the themes unearthed.
The plays are:
BINGO HALL by Dillon Chitto (Laguna and Isleta Pueblos, Mississippi Choctaw - USA) directed by Mariana Aristizabal
WHERE THE SUMMIT MEETS THE STARS by Frank Henry Kaash Katasse (Tlingít - Tsaagweidí - Juneau, Alaska, U.S.A.) directed by Sani Muliaumaseali'i
WOMEN OF THE FUR TRADE by Frances Koncan (Couchiching First Nation - Canada) directed by Bethany Wilkinson
THE UNPLUGGING by Yvette Nolan (Algonquin Nation, Kitigan Zibi community - Québec, Canada) directed by Raphael Ruiz
THE THIRD COUNTRY written and directed by Sani Muliaumaseali'i (Samoa - Vaiala/Fasitoo-uta/Pu'aPu'a New Zealand / Aotearoa -Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland)
GLOBAL INDIGENOUS VOICES expands the reach of ORIGINS to engage with emerging playwrights and distinct new voices; offering a forum for open discussion about current issues and the role of the arts within global debate.
