Building upon the stories of the Black Sturgeon from Nipissing First Nation, as told by Perry McLeaod-Shabogesic, and the previous Serpent People incarnations, Aanmitaagzi will present a series of community-engaged provocations that ask the questions:
- What are we eating that gives us power?
- What are we consuming that takes us away from who we are?
- What will bring us back to ourselves?
This durational live theatre provocation/intervention/interactive installation will ebb and flow from dusk to dawn, providing different encounters with the audience throughout the evening. Like stars dropped down from the sky, this work will be performed as an immersive performance at street level with a series of sculptural installations, performative interventions and a 15-foot puppet that explore our relationship to consumption.
