“Women’s Words” To Premiere at NACC

The creators of Women's Words before their writing session at Blachford Lake Lodge.

Next Saturday night NACC will bring it’s first original production to stage, called Yenene Yati or Oqausiit (Women’s Words).

The play made by Indigenous women, for Indigenous women, was conceived during a 10 day writing period at Blachford Lake Lodge.

Reneltta Arluk is the Director of Indigenous Arts at the Banff center for Arts and one of the creator’s of Women’s Words. She says she and her co-creators want to convey a message of accesibility in this show.

Sometimes we don’t think the theater is for us Indigenous people. We just really want to change that perspective, the theater is for everybody.

Arluk is one of four Indigenous women with theatre experience that created the play, the others being Micheline Chevrier, Yvette Nolan and Tiffany Ayalik.

Women’s Words will premiere at NACC on February 17 at 7:30 PM.
