A Living List

IPAA fire

Created in collaboration with Debajehmujig Storytellers and the National Arts Centre English Theatre during The Cycle: Indigenous Theatre.

Rather than the exclusionary notion of an Indigenous ‘canon’ we choose to celebrate our diverse performance community with this Body Of Work. This compilation of Indigenous-led works is incomplete.
