Guswenta Cabaret

  • Young Centre for the Performing Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Guswenta Wampum Belt, commonly referred to as the Two Row Wampum, is a mutual treaty agreement created in 1613 between the Haudenosaunee people and the Dutch settlers. The Belt ensures both parties conduct themselves in all proceedings as equals, contemporaries, each traveling in their own canoe without interrupting the other’s path.

Programmed by Falen Johnson and Cole Alvis, the Guswenta Gathering brings Indigenous artists to Soulpepper with presentations of theatre, dance, music and art. Programming will highlight art that speaks to the lands and waterways where The Young Centre for the Performing Arts sits.

Arts Everywhere Festival - On Being Clown: Failing and Reconciling in Canada

Tara will be providing musical accompaniment, reprieve, and performance for this innovative conversation on reconciliation.

For settlers, reconciliation requires the ability and the will to acknowledge, to absorb, and confront failures.  As a practice embedded in several cultures and traditions, clowning disrupts conventional understanding of, and relationships to failure and success. For the clown, the path to success is often informed and enriched through a fearless relationship with failure. Given this unique privileging of the potential and possibilities achieved through failure, clowns may be well positioned to offer unique insights and tools into important actions of advancing (radical) reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in the place we now call Canada.
