NATIVE EARTH PERFORMING ARTS + BUDDIES IN BAD TIMES

Back for a fourth year, the 2-Spirit Cabaret is a celebration of the strength, beauty, and talent of queer and 2-Spirit Indigenous people.

Native Earth Performing Arts is Canada’s oldest professional Indigenous theatre company. They are dedicated to developing, producing and presenting professional artistic expressions of the Indigenous experience in Canada. Buddies’ audiences will remember Native Earth from their critically acclaimed productions of Tara Beagan’s free as injuns (2012), Marie Clements’ Tombs of the Vanishing Indian (2010), and Yvette Nolan and Kennedy C. MacKinnon’s Death of a Chief (2008).
All advance tickets $20
A limited number of Pay-What-You-Can rush tickets will go on sale at noon for the 2-Spirit Cabaret, and you pick the price.
Rush Tickets are generally only available in-person at our box office, and we recommend getting here early for more popular shows as these tickets can sell fast. However, if getting down here in the middle of the day presents a barrier – accessible transportation, childcare, etc – simply call the box office at 416-975-8555, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll hold up to two Rush Tickets for you that you can purchase when you arrive to see the show.
