Treaty Acknowledgement & Company mandate
Prime Stock Theatre works, grows and inspires on land which has been a meeting place for the great storytellers of the Treaty 6 & 7 nations for centuries. This area, and the river that runs through it, is the traditional territory of the Niisitapi (Blackfoot), (including the Siksika, the Piikuni, and the Kainai Peoples), the Tsuut’ina, Stoney Nakoda, Cree, Saulteaux and Métis peoples. We strive, in the spirit of the treaties, to keep this a place of friendship and trust and promise. It’s a work in progress.
Prime Stock Theatre is an Artist-driven theatre that cultivates and challenges the limits of expression and expectation; dedicated to producing a repertoire that is thematically rich, visually adventurous and intellectually daring.
