Join Homestead Galleries Curator & Exhibitions Manager Melina for a intimate tour of our current exhibitions.
A perennial favourite of Canada’s Talk Is Free Theatre, Tales of An Urban Indian has played over 500 performances in locations across Canada, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and Suriname.
Staged entirely on a moving bus, writer Darryl Dennis’ play is about a contemporary indigenous man who grows up on both the reserve and in “big-city” Vancouver. This show conjures up many characters that appear in Simon's life, all played by one actor.
This event starts at Te Pou Theatre, Corban Estate Arts Centre. From there, audience members will board a bus, travel with the performer for the duration of the play, and return to Te Pou Theatre.
