Kamloopa (until Oct 6)

We’re hearing really great things about Kim Senklip Harvey’s Kamloopa. What Harvey refers to as Indigenous, rather than Canadian theatre, its story about two urban Indigenous sisters struggling to navigate their way through the world is as much about creating and embedding Indigenous ceremony and protocol as it is about the theatrical work itself. Visit thecultch.com for more information.
