“Women of the Fur Trade...bridges history with humour, and a dash of 21st-century slang.” Stephanie Cram, CBC
- In-person event
In association with Great Canadian Theatre Company (Ottawa) and Native Earth Performing Arts (Toronto.)
In eighteen hundred and something something, somewhere upon the banks of a Reddish River in Treaty One Territory, three very different women with a preference for twenty-first century slang sit in a fort sharing their views on life, love, and the hot nerd Louis Riel.
This lively historical satire of survival and cultural inheritance shifts perspectives from the male gaze onto women’s power in the past and present through the lens of the rapidly changing world of the Canadian fur trade.
The performance on January 26th will be American Sign Language (ASL) interpreted.
