Skyborn

A Land Reclamation Odyssey

Quelemia Sparrow / Savage Society (Vancouver) / Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival 
Jan 23–Feb 01, 2020  |  Historic Theatre

 

In Skyborn (previously O’wet), a woman falls through a black hole in her little blue house on the reserve. There, she meets her Granny Rose in the shape of a wolf, who guides her on a spirit canoe journey to retrieve her soul from the land of the dead.

Musqueam writer and performer Quelemia Sparrow has created an unforgettable adventure story—an odyssey full of magic, beauty, and power. Directed by Kim Senklip Harvey, creator and director of last season’s Kamloopa.
 
When a person had a spirit sickness, it was said that their soul had left their body. In Skyborn, we use theatre to embody a ritual that is a personal and familial odyssey of reclamation of self, and land, and blood memory.” —Quelemia Sparrow
