The title of this production, šxʷʔam̓ət, is based on a hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ (a local Indigenous dialect) word used to reference home. This word has so many different meanings to all of us who are living on this land.

The following is a pronunciation guide to facilitate your engagement with hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓. Content developed courtesy Musqueam Language and Culture Department 2017.

šxʷʔam̓ət: š is pronounced like English “sh”. xʷ sounds like the “wh” in “which” (as opposed to the “w” in “witch”). Stress is on the first syllable, like in the name “Amit”. ʔam̓ sounds like the first syllable in the word “omelet”. ət sounds like the second syllable of the word “comet”.

Provocative and entertaining, this production is created and performed by an Indigenous and non-Indigenous cast, and asks us to imagine what reconciliation really means. If you want innovative theatre that is engaging and challenges your perceptions, this would be it.

First, šxʷʔam̓ət (home) is terrific theatre. The public response to this project was very powerful. We played to 91% houses and started getting invitations from communities while we were still doing the first run in March of 2017. We also feel that šxʷʔam̓ət (home) asks very important questions about how we navigate Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Canada in true and honourable ways that do not replicate colonial ways of the past and present.
