Tumulx – In Development

By Quelemia Sparrow

Tumulx by Quelemia Sparrow is a new piece of Indigenous Futurism that envisions a future where Earth, tired, hot and desperate for salvation, begins to reach out to those she can trust, those with ancient bonds and lineages she believes to be dependable. They work together in a rebellion made of human and natural strategies to save the planet. It tells the story of a world where Indigenous nations globally once again become truly sovereign stewards of the land and this courageous leadership saves the planet.


This year Quelemia Sparrow will be developing Tumulx at Banff Centre as a part of the Slaight Theatre Creation Residency and digging into some tech experiments at the Frederic Wood Theatre through a fellowship with the UBC Department of Theatre and Film.
