High school theatre group showcases work around Indian Residential Schools & reconciliation
In response to the Truth and Reconciliation’s final report and 94 calls to action, the Secondary Education Graduate Students’ Association has invited New Blood dance production, a high school interpretive theatre group from Strathmore, Alberta in Treaty 7 territory, to showcase their work around Indian Residential Schools and reconciliation.
Inspired by the music of Peter Gabriel, interpretive dance, poetry, narrative, traditional Blackfoot dancing and drumming, the students bring the story of Siksika Chief Vincent Yellow Old Woman to the stage. The production has performed across Southern Alberta 30+ times to critical acclaim and is hailed as a hauntingly compelling and heartfelt story.
After the performance, we will have a talk-back with the performers.
