This monumental theater piece takes audiences on a moving journey through unexpected and sometimes somber episodes of Canadian history from the beginning of the 19th century to modern times as told through an artistic lens. The large-scale trilogy examines the Huron tribe and their interactions with famed Shakespearean actor Edmund Kean as documented in paintings from that time period, the nearly 150,000 children of the native Canadian community that were assimilated in “Indian Residential schools” shown through the eyes of a documentary photographer, and indigenous women that have disappeared or been murdered around Vancouver’s notorious Eastside and the artistic responses that have attempted to bring their faces and identities back into focus. The resulting series of vignettes combine deeply personal stories and collective memory to find a shared humanity.
