A Theatre New Brunswick production
With words and music by New Brunswick Wolastoqiyik artist Natalie Sappier, Finding Wolastoq Voice is a story of awakening and transformation. A young woman is lost and comes to find herself, and the way forward, by opening herself to the voice of her ancestors and the power in her own voice. Toronto-based Indigenous dancer/choreographer Aria Evans interprets the flow and rhythm of Sappier’s words and music. This dance/theatre production, with stunning design and movement, is as powerful as it is elegant.
Sappier is at the forefront of contemporary Indigenous art in New Brunswick. As a painter, musician, a singer and now as a playwright, her work is heavily influenced by her relationship with the land and the waterways that crisscross that province.
