AGOKWE – Unplugged

Thursday August 29, 8 – 10 p.m. 

Written and Performed by Waawaate Fobister

Theatrical One Man Show

Agokwe is a theatrical one man show that is a powerful tale that explores unrequited love between teenage boys – a hockey player and a dancer – from neighbouring reserves who connect through a mutual love of movement. But when tragedy intervenes, youth, distance, and isolation strive to pull them apart. This award-winning production, described as a “magnetic plea for tolerance and action” by the Georgia Straight, speaks to bullying, homophobia, unrequited love, social isolation and the lost traditions of the Anishnaabe.
