Coffee & Culture - Traditional Games of NL

Date: Feb 28
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Where: Theatre

Join Robin McGrath for a talk that will describe and consider the purposes and functions of some of the provinces traditional Innu, Inuit and Settler games and pastimes. The violent histories of piddley, flick, hoist-your-sails-and-run, the murderous capabilities of atinakan (Innu checkers), and the eroticism of Inuit strong figures, tell us much about our histories, our cultures, and our collective values.

Events & Programs

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Shakspeare By The Sea

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Mallory Fisher

This production marks Artistic Director Mallory Fisher's directorial debut with the company, and will broaden the appeal of Shakespeare by re-examining one of his lesser known and infrequently staged plays—Coriolanus—in a contemporary context. Set in present-day Newfoundland, the production will underscore the play’s extant themes of corruption of power, instability of capitalism, desensitization to violence, and toxic masculinity to examine our current political and social zeitgeist.

Tickets: $25 (general admission), $20 (students, seniors, unwaged)
