dc.description.abstract Indigenous theatre and performance will be the focus of a national symposium that is being held jointly by the University of Regina and First Nations University of Canada with strong support from Saskatchewan arts organizations including Common Weal Community Arts, Sâkêwêwak Artists' Collective and Curtain Razors and Sakatchewan Native Theatre Company among many others. Performing Turtle Island will bring together established and emerging scholars to examine how Indigenous theatre and performance are connected to Indigenous identity and community health. The conference is being held from Sept. 17 to 19. “Performing Turtle Island is about bridging communities, across the U of R campus, the province, Canada, and the world,” says Dr. Jesse-Archibald Barber, an assistant professor of Indigenous Literature at First Nations University and Co-Director and Curator of the event.
