NAC INDIGENOUS THEATRE OPENS ITS 2023-2024 SEASON WITH PAPAKANJE
Presented as part of Days of Truth and Reconciliation programming
September 13, 2023 – OTTAWA (Canada) – Indigenous Theatre welcomes you back to experience an incredible season of Indigenous stories and artistry. Join us on Saturday, September 23 at Papakanje, an unforgettable evening bringing the dynamic online movement #ReconcileThis to life in a live concert experience. This one-night-only event celebrates Indigenous voices through electrifying performances of beats, rhymes, and raw perspectives. Featuring performance from Crown Lands, Cody Coyote, DJ POPTRT, Tamara Podemski, and Zoey Roy.
#ReconcileThis is a social media initiative to uplift and amplify Indigenous voices online by activating and sharing stories, languages, cultures and perspectives through provocative digital performances and conversations in response to this hashtag. As part of this four-year initiative, thanks to generous support from Meta, NAC Indigenous Theatre will continue to offer funding and production equipment to transformative Indigenous voices to share stories, languages, histories, cultures, and perspectives.
Papakanje is featured as part of Indigenous Theatre's Days of Truth and Reconciliation. In observance of Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, Indigenous Theatre proudly presents a collection of virtual and in-person offerings, highlighting the strength and resilience of Indigenous cultures. These all-ages activities aim to educate and share the truths of Indigenous peoples, our stories, and the beauty of our communities.
As we have in past seasons, Indigenous Theatre will continue to offer community engaged activity, learning opportunities and corollary programming in and around the work presented on stage. We are honoured to be able to continue to offer $15 All My Relations tickets to the Indigenous community throughout the upcoming season. It extends to programming from all disciplines at the NAC.
