Elapultiek by Fire

We are delighted to be hosting the powerful play Elapultiek by Fire produced by Ken Schwartz of Two Planks and a Passion Theatre this week as a main event for Mi’kmaq History Month at Acadia University. This special event is open to Acadia students only as space is limited.

Elapultiek by Fire, written by Shalan Joudry, is a unique artistic experience about reconciliation, relationships and trust. Presented around the campfire circle, the play focuses on the growing relationship between an indigenous and non-indigenous biologist as they conduct a nightly wildlife count. As their relationship grows, so too do areas of potential conflict, as their differing perspectives on land, resources and history come to the fore.
