Performance and sound installation by Lara Kramer and Émilie Monnet.
A co-presentation with OFFTA
This Time Will Be Different denounces Canadian government discourse on Indigenous Peoples and takes a critical look at the “national reconciliation industry.” From one inquiry to the next, from the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, has anything really changed in the relationship between the Government of
Canada and this land’s first inhabitants?
Canadian critics have heaped high praise on choreographer Lara Kramer’s (Oji-Cree) articulate and outspoken works, including Native Girl Syndrome, which drew an uncompromising picture of itinerant aboriginal women. Interdisciplinary artist and founder of Onishka Productions, Émilie Monnet (Anishnaabe/French) collaborates with artists from different indigenous nations from here and across borders to offer innovative performances on issues of identity, memory, history, and transformation.
Saturday June 3 at 9 p.m.
Sunday, June 4 at 6 p.m + talk-back after the performance.
