Co-presented by Native Earth Performing Arts and Theatre Passe Muraille

Omaagomaan explores the resilience of the Anishinaabe people of Grassy Narrows. Using movement, sound, and storytelling the piece enlivens Omaagomaan – a two-spirit being, and a manifestation of the earth and man-made poisons that have seeped into the environment – forcing audiences to reckon with the ways the manaadizi (ugly) and the onizhishi (beautiful) collide.

Performed by Dora-award winning performer Waawaate Fobister the show is a multi-genre exploration of ways to stitch a fractured landscape back together.
