Native Earth and Buddies partner once again to present the 2-Spirit Cabaret as part of Weesageechak Begins to Dance 32, an annual development festival of new indigenous work.
A celebration of the strength, beauty, and talent of queer and 2-Spirit Indigenous people, the Cabaret features music, dance, drag, performance art, spoken word, poetry and comedy, curated by award-winning 2-Spirit theatre artist Michaela Washburn.
Sarah Hunter of the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation elaborates on their involvement, “We financially support this work not only because it brings incredible talent to the stage, but also because it’s critical we have more voices of indigenous peoples within the arts, this type of knowledge transfer is how we build stronger, more vibrant communities.”
Sold-out for three years in a row, the fourth edition of the Cabaret features Jennifer Alicia, Dakota Camacho, G.R. Gritt, Kat MacLean, Andre Morriseau, Brian Solomon, Michaela Washburn, Tygr Willy, Red Rhythm & Blues, and Mx.Wolverine.
