About Acknowledging:

I'm very excited to share brand-new theatre work at the Artesian!

During the past few years of my variety show, Burnt Sienna, this new project was bubbling up as I dug deeper into questions about my role as an artist here, my relationships to people and land.

I'm blown away by the generosity of the guest artists! Some who have been involved throughout, some who will perform with me! Misty Wensel, Krystle Pederson, Melanie Monique Rose, Jayda Delorme, Orion Paradis, Tori Yuzik, Shana Pasapa, Zoë & Iris James AND our PM, production matriarch, Chasity Delorme.

Three creation cycles of research, improv, interviews, story-sharing, music, felting, dance, design were thrown into the crucible of this pandemic... What comes out of the fire? A show humbly trying, reflecting and leaving space for asking, "In this present moment, what are we actually acknowledging?" A performance bringing honesty, humour, beauty, dance, and music to this question.

*Show runs 1 hour

*Post-show hot bread/hot takes - invitation to visit, discuss, and eat
