Misdemeanor Dream is a theatre performance project which brings together performing artists and designers from Native and First Nations communities across the United States and Canada. The production delves into old and new stories of tricksters, shape shifters, and spirits and explores our relationship to this otherworld through experience of space and installation and the rhythms and sounds of the original languages. Using spoken word, dance and movement, music and sound, the production weaves humor and irreverence and explores uncomfortable truths. We reclaim our languages and the connections to our ancestors, to history and to our cultural sources.
