A JOURNEY THROUGH INDIGENOUS STORYTELLING
Pimootayowin is an Anishinaabemowin word meaning Journey, a word chosen by Ian Ross who explains: “The creation of new art is often described as a journey, so too, our lives. In any journey, we often don’t know what lies ahead but we can emerge enriched by them."
Led by Governor General Award-winning playwright Ian Ross, the Pimootayowin Creators Circle supports the creation and development of new plays by Manitoba-based Indigenous artists. The Creators Circle meets from October to May each year and participates in weekly Wednesday meetings which culminate in Pimootayowin: A Festival of New Work, a free play-reading series that takes place in September 27 to October 1.
Be taken on this journey through six new works, read in the lobby of the Tom Hirsch Warehouse Theatre, exploring themes of Indigenous identity through drama and comedy. Seating is first-come-first-serve with a capacity of 50 people.
Head to the Royal MTC website to meet the playwrights, read show descriptions and read the schedule.
