The Anishinaabe of Grassy Narrows are resilient. They are stitching their fractured landscapes back together from the impact of mercury poisoning. Using dance, movement, sound, and storytelling, the Dora-award winning Waawaate Fobister embodies Omaagomaan, a two-spirit being, and a manifestation of the earth and man-made poisons that have seeped into the earth’s crust. A fierce shape-shifter inspired by Anishinaabeg worldview and cosmologies, Omaagomaan forces us to reckon with the ways the maanaadizi (ugly) and the onishishin (beautiful) collide.

Omaagomaan is created and performed by Waawaate Fobister and is part of Gwaandak Theatre’s Fifth Annual Awaken Festival. Find out more about the Creative Team and the Awaken Festival at gwaandaktheatre.ca/awaken-festival-2024. Omaagomaan is co-presented with Native Earth Performing Arts (nativeearth.ca).

Audience Advisory: Flashing lights, sudden loud noises, and mature themes.
