April 4, 2007

Indigenous Performance Initiatives (IPI) of Trent University’s Indigenous Studies Department invites members of the community to see "The Place Between", running each night at 8:00 p.m. from Thursday, April 19 to Saturday, April 21.

The Place Between"The Place Between" is a powerful interdisciplinary dance theatre piece about broken flesh, searching spirits and unfinished business between three generations of women trapped by the bonds of history and sorrow, who dance their way to reconciliation and redemption.

This visually stunning production has been developed by Native Earth Performing Arts from Toronto and Chëyikwe Performance from Vancouver in partnership with IPI. IPI is led by Indigenous Studies Professor Marrie Mumford, who is also a Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Arts and Literature at Trent University. Through performances like "The Place Between", Prof. Mumford actively engages students and Aboriginal performers in the process of recovering, sharing and preserving Aboriginal culture.

Tickets are $10.00, and reservations are recommended. Elders, students and underemployed are encouraged to give a donation at the door.

Nozhem, part of the First Peoples House of Learning in Peter Gzowski College at Trent, is located at 2510 Pioneer Road on the east bank of Trent University’s Symons Campus.
