Staging Equality Double Bill

Staging Equality presents two original performances inspired by children's storybooks.

The Staging Equality team who brought you Journey to Mapu (2021), Kamloopa: An Indigenous Matriarch Story (2021), im:print (2022) and It’s Just Black Hair (2023) is back with more performances for, with, and about Indigenous, Black, and people of colour.

The Woman Who Outshone the Sun is a Latin American folk tale. It tells the story of a mysterious and radiant woman arriving in a small village. Themes of judgement, discrimination and the true meaning of forgiveness are woven against the backdrop of nature, land and the precarity of these natural gifts.

Shi-shi-etko is a heartfelt children's story that traces the journey of a young Indigenous girl as she prepares to leave her family and attend residential school. It examines culture, family and the teachings of the Indigenous ways of knowing and being as seen through the eyes of a little girl.

Local IBPoC artists collaborate with UVic students, the Staging Equality faculty and the community to bring these thought-provoking tales to the stage.

Tickets $5-$32. Talk back following Friday evening shows.
