STEALING LIGHT: STORIES OF TRANSFORMATION

By donation to the garden
In this remarkable solo show Stealing Light: Stories of Transformation, Columpa C. Bobb (Artistic Director, Urban Indigenous Theatre, Winnipeg) enacts the story of a long-ago greedy chief who hoarded and would not share the life giving light of the stars, moon and sun. Raven stole these gifts from the power hungry chief and set them free for all people. Weaving stories and wisdom from her ancestors (Columpa is a great-granddaughter of Chief Dan George) mixed with contemporary stories of the wounded earth today, Columpa calls for Raven to once again steal the light.
