This is a new theatre project being developed in collaboration with T’lingit and Filipino theatre artists in the city of Whitehorse. The piece is being designed as an actual bingo game, in which audience members participate as bingo players and storytellers. The performance provides the occasion for community storytelling and exchange, and serious play around issues of shared dispossession, and communication and miscommunication between First Nations and Filipino communities in the Canadian North. The play will premiere at Whitehorse’s 2016 Nuit Blanche Festival.
