Stay tuned

Welcome to Building the Fire: Kamloopa - an Indigenous Matriarch play by Kim Senklip Harvey. Come behind the scenes in the process of creating Kamloopa as the cast and creative team talk about their experiences creating the show. Fire is important to Kim's nation and instead of using traditional colonial theatre roles we are reframing the structure around building a fire. So we have Fire Creators, Igniters, Holders, Tenders, and Extinguishers. We are building this together, taking care of each other, and ultimately welcoming you to sit next to us at the fire. Kamloopa - a co-production between Western Canada Theatre, The Cultch, and Gordon Tootoosis Nikaniwin Theatre.
