Description

AXIS THEATRE WORLD PREMIERE OF TH'OWXIYA: THE HUNGRY FEAST DISH

by Kwantlen playwright Joseph A Dandurand

For Ages 4+

When you take something from the earth, you must give something back.”

Six storytellers from the Kwantlen Village called Squa’lets spin the First Nations tale of TH’OWXIYA: THE HUNGRY FEAST DISH. The mouth of Th'owxiya holds the most wonderful foods from around the world. But, if you steal from her, you will pay a terrible price, for Th’owxiya eats children! When a brave young mouse takes a piece of cheese from Th'owxiya, he is caught. To appease the goddess, he must find two young spirits to sacrifice to her before the moon rises or she will eat his whole family!

Performance Details

TH’OWXIYA: THE HUNGRY FEAST DISH, told through mask and music, will animate the UBC Botanical Gardens Roseline Sturdy Amphitheatre for family audiences on Saturday & Sunday June 24th & 25th and July 1st & 2nd, 2017 at 11am and 1pm. Admission is free with reservation through Eventbrite.

"An unapologetically magical story. Frightening, mysterious, and wonderfully exciting." - Taran Kootenhayoo
