Join us for an evening exploring the work of Canadian sociologist Jean-François Côté, whose latest book focuses on indigenous theatre in Canada as a new form of expression within the transcultural transformation of the Americas. Indigenous theatre, Côté argues, has been experiencing a renaissance for over thirty years—drawing from its traditional forms, but equally inspired by modern avant-garde theatre artists. The dramatic works of Canadian artists Yves Sioui Durand & Catherine Joncas (Ondinnok Ensemble), Monique Mojica, and Drew Hayden Taylor are in line with theatrical experiments of Antonin Artaud, Gertrude Stein, and Bertolt Brecht. Using the stage as a contemporary reflection on the current situation of Native Americans, the revival of indigenous theatre transcends the theatrical experience.Buy tickets/get more info now
