Indigenous Theatre welcomes you back to the NAC with an uplifting and inspiring season! Ignite your spirit with Indigenous artists from the four directions, across Turtle Island and around the world. We open our season with the matriarchal powerhouse Hot Brown Honey. Next, we travel north, first with Aalaapi, a co-presentation with Theatre français, and then, along with English Theatre, we share the wisdom of a polar bear caught in catastrophic climate change in The Breathing Hole. A prophecy from the plains emerges in The Herd, and from the west, a land claim fable, Little Red Warrior and His Lawyer leaves no one unscathed. Welcome back to theatre, we’ve missed you!
Indigenous Theatre invited artists from coast to coast to coast to create brief digital works using the land as their source of inspiration.
Our Stories is back in two new formats – a podcast featuring authors in conversation with guest hosts, and a book list and activities for kids.
A unique audio storytelling experience based on memories from Indigenous community members interpreted by Indigenous artists.
We are committed to opening our doors and creating a place where the Indigenous community feels a sense of belonging and a connection to us and our work.
It is critical to safeguard your mental wellness. We have gathered a collection of mental health resources aimed at maintaining and improving mental health and well being.
Indigenous Theatre at the National Arts Centre is the first National Indigenous theatre department in the world! Our art is alive—it is shape-shifting and developing as we continue to learn, create, and share with one another.
