In June 2016, our production of Mistatim was nominated for a 2016 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Production. Mistatim is about the taming of a wild horse and the forging of the truest of friendships. A story of reconciliation for children and their families, Mistatim is an intercultural story that combines dance, theatre, mask, storytelling and music into one unforgettable dance experience.
Under a prairie sky, a simple wooden fence is all that separates Calvin on his ranch and Speck on her reservation, but in many ways they are worlds apart, that is – until a wild horse named Mistatim turns their worlds upside down.
“Mistatim vibrates with energetic freedom and thrilling eye-opening discovery.”
– NNNN star review – NOW Magazine.
In our 2016-17 season, Mistatim is slated to tour to Michigan, Minnesota, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Illinois and New York as well as to Canadian provinces including: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario. We do have a few spots available, so please let us know if you want to be part of this leg of the tour!
We are currently planning a 2017-18 tour across Australia and Canada.
