Presented by New Native Theatre
  • Comedy

The festival invites local and international Native American and First Nations artists from across the continent to share brand new stories with the Twin Cities community. It is an evening filled with laughter and celebration as Native people control their narrative. This year, NNT presents 12 new plays by emerging and professional playwrights from diverse tribal backgrounds and hosts an international actor in residence from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

The plays take on a wide variety of themes, “A Christmas in Ochopee” by Montana Cypress explores the classic “American family” play under a Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida lens, while William S. Yellow Robe, Jr., who is Assiniboine, returns to the festival for the third year in a row, exploring cultural appropriation with humor in “Files of the Indin Police.” Deanna StandingCloud is following up her successful play, “Blood Quantum Physics,” from last year’s festival, which went on to be performed by NNT throughout last year and won the 2018 Wisconsin Native Playwrights’ contest, with its sequel, “Virtual Medicine Man,” that examines western society’s obsession with Native culture while her characters desperately protect and hold onto their own Ojibwe values.

This year’s line-up also includes plays written by: Tim Brown (White Earth), Lara and Helena Gerhardson (White Earth/Red Lake), Alex Shunka Wakan Wacipi Hesbrook Ramier (Cheyenne River), Bret Jones (Muscogee Creek), Lennixx-Rodney Treat Lee (Cheyenne River), Michael D. Nephew (Eastern Band of Cherokee), Laura Annawyn Shamas (Chickasaw), Odessa Star Comes Out (Oglala Lakota), and June Thiele (Athabascan and Yupik).

Wednesday, August 8-11, 7:30PM & Sunday, August 12, 2:00PM
