High Performance Rodeo Presents

God’s Lake

Co-Presented with Sage Theatre
January 17th – 19th, 2019

Directed by Britt Small

A World Premiere. This original work of documentary theatre is about the strength and resilience of the people in the remote fly-in reserve of God’s Lake Narrows, Manitoba following traumatic events of unresolved justice and a complex, challenging past. A glimpse into the lived reality of this community is told verbatim from interviews conducted over six months in 2017.

God’s Lake is a collaboration between playwright Francesca Albright and award-winning Swampy Cree filmmaker Kevin Lee Burton. Directed by Atomic Vaudeville’s Britt Small. Dramaturgy by Gordon Pengilly. Using original live music, heightened physicality and stunning visual imagery, God’s Lake offers a rare opportunity to witness the complex issues facing people living in a remote community and provides an understanding for those who might have no awareness of the reserve system, let alone what it’s like to live in a remote First Nations reserve.
