Chief Harold Sappier Elementary School

305 Maliseet Drive, Fredericton, New Brunswick
Finding Wolastoq Voice is a powerful dance/theatre hybrid performance by multi-disciplinary artist Natalie Sappier that explores the personal discovery, identity and culture of a young Wolastoqiyik woman awakened by the voices of her ancestors.

Join us in celebrating Natalie’s incredible playwriting debut with this one-time, by-donation performance just days before moving on to a three show run as part of the inaugural Indigenous Theatre Series at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.

About the Play:

Natalie Sappier made her playwriting debut with Finding Wolastoq Voice. As the final professional production of our 2017-2018 season, the play received a two week run in Fredericton and toured the province before wrapping up with a three show run at Native Earth Performing Arts in Toronto. It has since been performed at Manitoba’s Prairie Theatre Exchange and continues to gain momentum as one of the most relevant and moving works of modern Indigenous theatre.
