The Unnatural and Accidental Women: Amanda Parris interviews actor PJ Prudat, director Muriel Miguel and Indigenous Theatre’s artistic director Kevin Loring.
This month, The National Arts Centre in Ottawa launched its new Indigenous Theatre department with a festival called Mòshkamo, and CBC Arts: Exhibitionists host Amanda Parris was on location to learn more about what’s in store for their first-ever season. The department’s 2019-2020 programming is centred around Indigenous women, with nine of the 11 productions written and created by women and the season kicks-off with a courageous play that first premiered 20 years ago. The Unnatural and Accidental Women by Marie Clements shares the stories of 10 women who were targeted by a serial killer in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
