Peawanuck Community Residency
February 6 – 14, 2009
Peawanuck First Nation invited Debajehmujig to engage community youth at the community youth centre, creating a performance work that brought to life the legends of the Trickster. Using Improv Theatre and elements of Pochenko Style Clown, a thirty minute piece was created with artists, the youth group and grade 7s and 8s from the local school. The residency was completed by a public performance with 200 attendees from the community.
Arts Animators Bill Shawanda was the project lead with support from Tabitha Peltier, Carin Bird, David John Kioke, and Catherine Cheechoo Gull.
