Created and performed by a mixed Indigenous and non-Indigenous cast and production team, šxwʔamət (home) weaves together stories based on real life and challenges us to make reconciliation real and honourable.“It is precisely because education was
the primary tool of oppression of Aboriginal people, and miseducation of all Canadians, that we have concluded that education holds the key to reconciliation” – Justice Murray Sinclair

There’s a conversation happening in Canada about Reconciliation and how it is manifesting action in both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities across this country.But what do these initiatives really mean?
If we are sincere about the desire for reconciliation, what kinds of shifts in perceptions and behaviours need to take place? What is the pulse of change each of us are shaping?

šxwʔamət (home) will invite audiences to change the patterns of behaviour inside characters who are struggling with these issues – patterns that audience members recognize inside themselves – and rehearse true reconciliation. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in this innovative piece of interactive theatre on an important issue!
