Description

**Please note that we are currently sold out of tickets. We are encouraging those who do not have a ticket, to show up at the door the day of the event to see if there are any open seats available so you will be served first come, first serve. If you cannot make this, there will be a live webcasting done from Vancouver on March 10th, 2018 that you can view from the Theatre for Living website.**

šxʷʔam̓ət means home in Hǝn̓q̓ǝmin̓ǝm̓, a Coast Salish dialect. A pronunciation guide is below. This word has so many different meanings to all of us who are living on this land.

Conversations have been bubbling across the country about this word “Reconciliation” and what it really means. With the “Canada 150” anniversary this past year, and with the closure of the “Truth and Reconciliation” offices in 2015, there are many questions about what these policies, proclamations, and apologies mean to all of us who call this place “home”.

What does Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people look and feel like? How does this idea of “Reconciliation” translate 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 something that permeates many aspects of all of our lives.

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

*This performance is appropriate for youth ages 12 and older.

All tickets also available at Okanagan Nation Alliance Westbank Office.
