The Transformations Project


By Raoul Wilke / Canadian Stage

A self-reflection of a man in relation to his surroundings. As men we hide in our shields, afraid of vulnerability and the topic of mental health. This is a look into a young man’s journey, on a quest to find his inner light, while being in constant battle against himself.

The land I am standing on today is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. I also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.
