    Full Circle speaks of many images…
    - full gathering of people – all races, cultures, communities, perspectives
    - completeness, inclusiveness, wholeness
    - the completion of a journey
    - unceasing movement – no beginning or ending.
    Margo Kane established Full Circle First Nations Performance in 1992, with principles in mind that reflect these images. Full Circle creates opportunities for Aboriginal artists, writers and performers to express the reality of First Nations experiences and to work in harmony with First Nations traditions while engaging contemporary, interdisciplinary theatrical techniques. Full Circle provides an environment that fosters the development of skills, ideas, exploration, and collaboration.
    The ensemble members are dancers, singers, actors, clowns, writers, and musicians. Margo Kane employs a collaborative approach through workshops that become research and training projects for all participants. Full Circle’s skilled and talented artists are excellent creative ambassadors for Aboriginal communities and valuable role models for emerging Native artists. A number of them have moved on to practice as actors, performing artists, musicians, visual artists, and writers in mainstream theatre in Canada.
    Integral to Full Circle’s mandate is networking and collaborating with performing artists and arts organizations regionally, nationally, and internationally.
