The Confederation Centre Young Company’s new musical play, The Talking Stick, will tell First Nations’ stories from across the country this summer at The Charlottetown Festival. The creators of the play say that with music, dance and spoken word, this original production will capture the diversity and commonalities of the country’s aboriginal communities.

In isolation and in concert, First Nations people have created language and culture, arts and music, history, agriculture and industry. In many aboriginal and First Nations communities, the talking stick is a symbol of order and respect. The Young Company’s The Talking Stick will use this tradition respectfully to share their heritage and their stories.

As part of the Confederation Centre Young Company’s celebrated We Are Canadian! series, The Talking Stick will invite aboriginal and First Nations students from every province and territory to audition for roles in the production.

These young Canadians will work with Allan, associate artistic director Wade Lynch, and writer/director Cathy Elliott, a status Mi’kmaq from Ontario, to research, create and perform the show.
