Playwrights Guild of Canada (PGC) and the Woodland Cultural Centre team up to host an evening of interactive Indigenous storytelling in Brantford, Ontario. The Woodland Play Walk is kicking off PGC’s annual conference on June 2nd with a free event of play readings and a fireside gathering.
The Woodland Play Walk will feature five Indigenous playwrights from across the country who will share their stories in designated locations throughout the Woodland Cultural Centre. The audience will be able to curate their own experience by choosing a route that will take them from reading to reading. These guided paths will lead to stories told by Joshua Bainbridge, Keith Barker, Alanis King, Frances Koncan, and Clayton Windatt.
As Robin Sokoloski, Executive Director of PGC, states, “We are so thrilled to partner with Woodland to present this interactive theatrical experience. I grew up in Brantford with very little knowledge of Six Nations of the Grand River. This free and open event is an opportunity to generate greater connections through story.”
PGC’s conference, “Aspire Together” will continue the following day at Theatre Aquarius in Hamilton, ON. Panels have been organized in concert with Theatre Ontario, Hamilton Fringe, and Pat the Dog Theatre Creation. Acclaimed playwrights such as Norm Foster and Lisa Codrington are among the conference’s speakers.
