Register Today! APA's March Workshop Tour - A Shifting Landscape

February 5, 2018 | Are you presenting Indigenous performing artists? Or do you want to start presenting them? And you want to do that appropriately? A Shifting Landscape can help you!

France Trépanier and Chris Creighton-Kelly

The Canadian arts environment is changing. This is the result of many factors, some of which are: the resilient renaissance of Indigenous artists; the cultural waves from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action; new funding programs at the Canada Council for the Arts and a growing, sustained interest in Indigenous performance coming from multiple arts audiences — both Indigenous and non-Indigenous.

A Shifting Landscape is a practical, intensive, day-long journey, looking at presenting the work of Indigenous performing artists. Using four modules throughout the day, France and Chris delve into the complex issues of colonial history, presenting protocols and Indigenous performance practices — both customary and contemporary.

They will facilitate sometimes difficult, small group discussions and workshop exercises that elaborate current concepts such as conciliation/reconciliation, Indigeneity, decolonization and Indigenous artistic sovereignty.

What do all these terms actually mean when it comes to the performing arts?

Tuesday, March 20th - Moncton, NB - Capitol Theatre

Thursday, March 22nd - Halifax, NS - Atlantica Hotel

Saturday, March 24th - St. John's, NL - LSPU Hall, Second Space
