Who we are & Why we are
This project is an exciting collaboration between two award- winning Alberta theatre companies’ with national scope, Alberta Aboriginal Performing Arts (AAPA) and Punctuate! Theatre.
Alberta Aboriginal Performing Arts (AAPA) is an Aboriginal Theatre and Performing Arts organization based in Edmonton, Alberta. Our mandate is to nurture and cultivate an Aboriginal arts scene in Edmonton by creating opportunities for Aboriginal Artists, Writers and Performers to present their work to the public. We produce events that bring artists of multiple disciplines and Aboriginal traditions together. Our goal is to encourage and inspire collaborations in art and performance in both contemporary and traditional styles and to bring these creations to audiences across Alberta. AAPA provides audiences of all backgrounds a chance to experience challenging artistic works that speak from a unique Aboriginal perspective.
Punctuate! Theatre is a Sterling Award winning professional theatre company based in Edmonton Alberta. We are dedicated to creating diverse, multidisciplinary dance and theatre productions. We engage both professional and emerging artists, providing mentorship opportunities within the artistic and production team. We think Albertans deserve to have cultural and artistic events brought to their communities.
Minosis Gathers Hope will be performed for school audiences at Toronto’s acclaimed live arts-hub & incubator, The Theatre Centre (1115 Queen Street W) from January 10 - 27, 2018.
