Ange Loft and the Talking Treaties Tiohtià:ke Collective, consisting of Barbara Kaneratonni Diabo and Iehente Foote, inaugurate Centaur Theatre’s first Indigenous Artist Residency. The Collective will develop a new site-specific theatrical performance that traverses the Centaur Theatre and surrounding grounds, incorporating historic research, music, Kanien’kéha language, large scale imagery/puppetry, verbatim text, and traditional Indigenous, as well as contemporary, dance. With years of historical and archeological research and a vast network of Indigenous creators and performers connected to the collective, Ms. Loft intends to share content and artists, extending aspects of the work into Kahnawake and other Indigenous communities.
