Reconciliation comes alive through music, dance, theatre and visual art! Join Sarasvàti Productions for this unique experience that shares the stories of over 70 Indigenous youth and their view of reconciliation. The performance includes an interactive art walk, a stage performance, and the opportunity for dialogue while feasting on traditional food.

Beginning in early 2019, seven local organizations partnered with Sarasvàti Productions and guest artists to offer a creative and supportive space for Indigenous youth. Through these workshops, over 70 youth examined the theme of reconciliation. Sharing stories about how they interact with the world around them and how the world in turn interacts with them.

Now, a team of professional artists has compiled the art and stories the youth have offered into a unique piece of theatre, presented outdoors at The Forks this spring. Utilizing a multi-media performance style including music, dance, drumming, theatre and a promenade, this collaboration brings together youth, elders, artists and audiences to honour the feelings and experiences of Indigenous youth in Winnipeg.

Each performance will include feasts and conversation circles to engage the audience; all are welcome to join in the dialogue.  Please join us in the spirit of Reconciliation and support the voices and stories of Winnipeg’s Indigenous youth!

Made in Exile: Theatre & Storytelling Program (youth-led community arts initiative, Toronto)

About the Program

« Made in Exile’s Theatre and Storytelling is a free community theatre program for Tibetan youth (29 years old and under) to explore stories of Tibetans in the diaspora. Participants will get the opportunity to:

  • gain knowledge and exposure to theatre through workshops led by local guest artists
  • work towards creating their own performance piece
  • get the opportunity to perform and share their work with their family and friends
  • attend a field trip to see a local play with fellow participants

རེ་བ་Aspiration

The program is dedicated to honouring the unique experiences accumulated by Tibetans navigating life in exile. As a creative outlet for Tibetan youth, community theatre helps young Tibetans express their feelings, thoughts and aspirations, while also affirming Tibetan spirit and community. Oral storytelling and performance has always been a strong aspect of Tibetan culture; Made in Exile is a space for Tibetan youth to renew our cultural treasures as they work through the complexities of being the exile generation.

Commitment

The program will have 12 sessions, each 3 hours long that will happen during the span of 2.5 months. In addition there will be a dress rehearsal and final performance. The first 8 sessions will be the workshop phase with local guest artists, the next 4 sessions after that will be the creation phase and the last two sessions will be dedicated to rehearsal and final showing of pieces created in the program. After the program is done, the whole team will go out to see a local play in Toronto to celebrate the hard work of all the participants.
