Buddies and Native Earth Performing Arts present an evening of performances, music, and spoken word as part of Weesageechak Begins to Dance – Native Earth’s 30th annual festival of Indigenous works.

Native Earth Performing Arts is Canada’s oldest professional Indigenous theatre company. Currently celebrating our 35th year, we 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) and, Marie Clements’ Tombs of the Vanishing Indian (2010), and Yvette Nolan and Kennedy C. MacKinnon’s Death of a Chief (2008). This is the second year that our two companies have partnered on the 2-Spirit Cabaret.
