Planet IndigenUs is bringing over 300 artists together in Toronto, August 2015.
ARTICLE 11 is proud to bring In Spirit starring Sera-Lys McArthur to the stage at Harbourfront Studio (August 5 & 6, 8pm) and under the Gardiner at Fort York (August 8, 10pm.)
Audiences have been asking when the show will return, and we are delighted to inform you these showings are accessible, as Planet IndigenUs works to ensure every show is FREE OF CHARGE. So, come to the redesigned waterfront with your family (recommend ages 12 and up for In Spirit.) and catch some magnificent Indigenous artists at work.
“I was moved by the work of Tara Beagan, Andy Moro, and Sera-Lys McArthur for In Spirit. This story tore a few heartstrings, and brought questions to mind that need asking in the Canadian conscience as a whole: what is happening to these missing and murdered Native women and girls, and why?”
-Roseanne Supernault (Métis) award-winning actor and youth workshop facilitator
a bit of history about the project…
Native Earth Performing Arts produced the first full production of In Spirit in 2014. It was presented at Full Circle’s Talking Stick Festival and then at Aluna Theatre’s Rutas Panamericanas Festival, which was presented in association with Native Earth.
prior to this, incarnations of the work appeared at SummerWorks and Factory’s CrossCurrents festival, as well as in a special retreat showing at the Shaw Festival through a residency at Cahoots Theatre. if you missed all of these, don’t you worry…
the core artistic team – Andy Moro and Tara Beagan – have re-worked the show to serve a sharper, stronger journey. we will be bringing In Spirit ON LOCATION to outdoor non-venues across the country and internationally very soon. we’re taking our most vital stories beyond theatre walls and into the communities where the stories happen.
more news to come.
