Global Indigenous Voices – 13th June 2019

Global Voices Theatre 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 lineup of plays is:
Bingo Hall by Dillon Chitto (Laguna and Isleta Pueblos, Mississippi Choctaw – USA)
Where the Summit Meets the Stars by Frank Henry Kaash Katasse (Tlingít – Tsaagweidí – Juneau, Alaska, U.S.A.)
Women of the Fur Trade by Frances Koncan (Couchiching First Nation – Canada)
The Unplugging by Yvette Nolan (Algonquin Nation, Kitigan Zibi community – Quebec, Canada)
The Third Country by Sani Muliaumaseali’i (Samoa – Vaiala/Fasitoo-uta/Pu’aPu’a Aotearoa New Zealand)

The readings will be followed by a post-show conversation with Global Indigenous Voices curator Madeline Sayet (Mohegan) and Border Crossings’ ORIGINS Festival Associate Artist Stephanie Pratt (Dakota Sioux).

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.
