Event Description

January 29—February 24, 2019
Bears
By Matthew MacKenzie

★★★★★ “… a witty, riveting and evocative production…Bears will leave you breathless.” —NOW MAGAZINE

“a combination of ingenuity, humour and the fire of political commitment.” —TORONTO STAR

“…a highly entertaining evening at the theatre thanks to MacKenzie’s clever direction and Monica Dottor’s ingenious choreography.” —GLOBE & MAIL

A multi-disciplinary journey through our wondrous and contested environment.

Pursued by the RCMP, Floyd has to get out of town fast. Heading through the Rockies for the Pacific, through the forests and along the rivers, he experiences changes – inside and out. Floyd’s journey is assisted by the wildlife he encounters – especially the bears.

Bears won two Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Awards in Edmonton for Outstanding Musical Score and Outstanding Choreography. Bears won the 2018 Dora Awards (Toronto) for Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Production.

“I’d never seen a piece that speaks to issues facing Canada’s Indigenous peoples as effectively and beautifully as Bears does.” —JERRY SADDLEBACK, CREE ELDER AND DEAN OF CULTURAL STUDIES AT MASKWACÎS COLLEGE

AN ALBERTA ABORIGINAL PERFORMING ARTS AND PUNCTUATE! THEATRE (EDMONTON) PRODUCTION
