This new play by Tai Amy Grauman follows two souls in five different Indigenous love stories at five different distinct periods in history. Through alternate forms of theatrical structure, the piece explores ancestor’s history and the ways in which a young woman inherits trauma from the matriarchs in the family.
A play first commissioned in 2016, Skyborn is a dreamlike canoe odyssey by Quelemia Sparrow, guided by the spirit of her Great Grandmother. The story dives deep into the intergenerational effects of colonialism, memory and the reclamation of land and self.
