For the past year Jessica has been visiting schools and youth groups presenting her one woman show “Starting Monday” that deals with bullying, weight, self-esteem and the affect the media has on youth. After each performance she has a question and answere session and is available to any youth who want to talk one on one.
Three artists from the Debajehmujig Storytellers visual artists Josh Peltier, actor Jessica Wilde-Peltier and B-boy Curtis Kagige were invited by Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario (GNO) from May 6th to the 10th to create a new work of art as individual artists at this years’ Fair of Alternative Art in Sudbury (FAAS4). The fair took place in the Rainbow Centre Shopping Mall in Sudbury Ontario with the theme “Not For Sale”. All 30 artists were each given a shopping cart to create their art installations.
On Sunday evening Debajehmujig Theatre Group presented The Global Savages, an hour-long event sharing the cultural and spiritual history of the Anishinaabeg people. It is not so much a performance as a kind of heightened storytelling experience; the company deliver an upbeat, very much abbreviated, occasionally funny, and occasionally tragic retelling of the Anishinaabeg people’s “recorded history” in the oral tradition.
