Event description

Description

On Saturday February 17 and Sunday 18 the Faculty of Social Work is hosting a very special production of the audience-interactive play šxʷʔam̓ət (Home). šxʷʔam̓ət means home in Hǝn̓q̓ǝmin̓ǝm̓, a Coast Salish dialect. This word has many different meanings to all of us who are living on this land. The play examines what Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples looks and feels like, and asks how the idea of “Reconciliation” translates into our day-to-day human relationships.

This audience interactive play puts real, tough, current issues on the stage about the blockages we all face moving towards Reconciliation. It asks the “What now?” question in regards to Reconciliation, and compels audiences to think about Reconciliation not as a “thing of the past”, but as something that permeates many aspects of all of our lives.

šxʷʔam̓ət (home) is created and performed by a courageous mixed Indigenous and non-Indigenous cast and production team, and weaves together stories based on real life, challenging all of us to make reconciliation true and honourable. The play invites audiences to try to offer solutions to the real-life problems being presented on the stage.

Tickets for this production are $15 to cover the costs associated with the production. A percentage of tickets has been set aside for University of Calgary students and those unable to afford to purchase tickets. Email don.mcswiney@ucalgary.ca for details.

The play is being presented as part of the Faculty of Social Work's Positive Disruption Series.
