Nurturing A Season
This season, we have our shovels out, gardening gloves on, and manure in the backseat. Hand to earth, hand to heart, ready to make something good on the beautiful promise of this theatre community, and the beautiful lands beneath our feet.
Neworld Theattre creates, produces, and tours new plays, performance events and digital works. Our motto is ‘plays well with others’. Collaboration and working across perceptions of difference are central to our ethics and the way we work. Our programming responds to the creative interests of Neworld’s core artists and opportunities that emerge in relation to other artists and organizations.
In Association with Neworld Theatre
The Seventh Fire
January 25 – February 5 2023, at the Push International Performing Arts Festival. Tickets on sale now – all tickets free for Indigenous people with the promo code PUSH7THFIRE.
A Delinquent Theatre production, co-produced by the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival and Full Circle First Nations Performance, in association with Neworld Theatre
The Seventh Fire is an immersive audio performance by Lisa C. Ravensbergen that sources traditional, oral Anishinaabe stories and societal roles as a way to evoke ceremony in the everyday. The Seventh Fire takes place in the present, past, and future, and above and below the earth, as sisters Daanis and Nimise, and grandmother Nokomis reach through time and space to be together. Using Lobe Studio’s unique and powerful 4D Sound System, The Seventh Fire is an immersive and transportive audio experience that uses sound as a portal to the worlds of ancestors, spirit, and earth. Through these portals, we hope to offer participants a way to connect with the Medicine that lives within all of us, as we co-dream a Future we all need.
Created by Lisa C. Ravensbergen, in collaboration with Mishelle Cuttler (Sound Designer), Debbie Courchene (Associate Sound Designer and Technical Director), Laura McLean (Collaborating Dramaturg), and Christine Quintana (Collaborating Dramaturg), with vocal performances by Margo Kane, Tasha Faye Evans, and Lisa C. Ravensbergen and additional vocals by Renae Morriseau and Kaitlyn Yott.
