We are asking for your generous support the upcoming World premiere of SALMON GIRL at Presentation House Theatre in January 2017 

The Salmon Girl team will be deep in the watery world of rehearsal throughout January to share this visually stunning work that speaks to a First Nations perspective on the importance of water and salmon.  With so much talk in the media today about protecting our waters, this story comes with a timely significance. 

Show dates: January 27, 28, 29 & February 3,4,5 - 2017 

We have a large team coming together to make Salmon Girl possible. With many costs related to production, your donation will help make this visually stunning work production a success and support our mission to share Indigenous story & dance with our community. 

Directors: Michelle Olson (choreographer), & Quelemia Sparrow (playwright)

Performers: Tasha Faye-Evans, Taran Kootenhayoo, Jeanette Kotowich, & Donna Soares

Design Team:  Shizuoka Kai (set design), Jessica Oostergo (costume design), Bret Roach (technical director/production manager), Brad Trenaman (lighting designer), & Theresa Tsang (Stage manager). 

Salmon Girl explores the world of water and salmon.  Through theatre, dance, music and puppetry, this piece for all ages follows the journey of a young girl into this magical world. Choreographer Michelle Olson from the Tr’ondek Hwech’in First Nation and playwright Quelemia Sparrow from the Musquem First Nation bring together their respective cultural perspectives and stories to create a piece that is both meaningful and delightful to all audiences. For family audiences ages 6+

Thank you so much for your support and generosity.
