MAY 6TH LINEUP
Why Coyote No Longer Wears Moccasins – Chris Bose
Thursday, May 6th at 7pm
Chris Bose is a dynamic and engaging storyteller who got his start learning stories from his grandparents who were traditional storytellers, speaking a few different languages, primarily secwepemc and nlaka’pamux, broken English and bits and pieces of other Indigenous languages. Years of travels and adventures with his grandparents percolated into his brain and now he is a storyteller traveling the world. Chris makes his stories fun and interactive, sharing words in his languages as well as bringing to life the stories of coyote, the trickster, spa-ach the bear, ska-lu-la the owl and many more! Come have some fun, take a journey through time, and see the world before humans, when the animals were running things around here!

Dwelling Sight – Tamarack House productions
Thursday, May 6th at 9pm
In this performance, we will explore the difficult and universally human topics of loss, regret and navigating the sinuous process of self-repair through movement, music and spoken word. We will take on roles as plants and animals both to illuminate the audience to the lighter side of these topics and to the broader concept that suffering is not restricted to the human species, or even to living organisms, but rather is something that applies equally to ecosystems, the communities of all kinds and the globe. We have struggled with feeling small and like our problems pale alongside larger societal issues that our place of privilege prevents us from fully feeling. We have come to accept that our stories, as small as they are, are universal, and it is these common emotional experiences that unite us. Our overall message is one of optimism. Our problems, big or small, may break us. But our intrinsic resilience means that we can mend ourselves.
