2018-2019 SEASON


“We welcome you to another ambitious season of theatre, dance, and opera.?For over 36 years, Native Earth has been the destination for Indigenous performance. The routes we navigate today were mapped by those who came before us. It is because of them we now cross oceans instead of streets to share our work with the world.

As we move forward we honour those artists with stories, with song, and with dance. I promise you this will be good medicine for the heart. I hope you will join us. ” – Keith Barker, Artistic Director
