Indigenous peoples have the right to practise and revitalize their cultural traditions and customs. This includes the right to maintain, protect and develop the past, present and future manifestations of their cultures, such as archaeological and historical sites, artifacts, designs, ceremonies, technologies and visual and performing arts and literature.
-United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, 13/09/2007
Our work challenges the artists and the medium. As a living, breathing, shared experience, the medium must evolve with society. As mixed-roots “bridge” people, we know that art can have a positive impact on relations between Indigenous peoples and non. Each project we undertake serves this knowledge.
Our projects are created with uncompromising excellence, and are well-resourced thus inspiring and rewarding a rigorous process with appropriate remuneration and recognition.
The work we create has import for the communities of which we are a part. Indigenous, mixed blood, politically-thoughtful, feminist, non-discriminatory and accountable peoples. We recognize and celebrate that theatre’s strength is its ability to create communion among individuals. Our theatre is accessible to the communities we serve.
We build performative works with a holistic approach and a rigorous attack. Inspired by the traditional leadership values in our First Nations communities by maintaining a directional focus without an imposed hierarchy. All collaborators work to celebrate Article 11 through practise.
