Collage image of all shows. L-R is Dust, True Colors, and Embodying Power & Place


March 27 - April 22

A garbled transmission from our theoretical future, Dust is a plea, and a warning. In a seditious act of faith, a rogue “Person With Privilege” attempts to communicate across time and space from the year 2170. They speak to us from a world fully transformed by data-capitalism and migration into virtual space, and a world in which the Climate Catastrophe has been defeated … at an unspeakable cost.

Co-presented by VIFF, Neworld Theatre, The Arctic Cycle & Progress Lab 1422. For tickets and more information, click here.

Embodying Power & Place

March 27 - April 11

In 2019, the federal commission on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls released their final report, Reclaiming Power and Place. In 2020 over a dozen artists from a wide range of disciplines were commissioned by New Harlem Productions to read and respond to specific chapters of the report. This digital iteration of Embodying Power and Place offers twelve audio-visual works that seek to honour the missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, Trans, and Two-Spirit people, and strives to create a sacred space in which to reflect, heal, and find renewed hope.

Co-presented by Nightwood Theatre and Native Earth, curated by New Harlem Productions. For more information, click here.
