Project Title: Encountering First Nations Theatre in Quebec.

Project Summary:
Ondinnok and Menuentakuan are the only existing French-speaking First Nations theatre companies in Canada. Yet, despite a body of work spanning 30 years, Ondinnok remains under-researched. This project fills this gap and, in examining Ondinnok alongside the newly-formed Menuentakuan (2015), documents the emergence and reception of a contemporary Indigenous’ dramaturgy in Quebec.
