Storyweaving with Michelle Olson and Yvette Nolan. Grades 6, 7 & 8

Series: LIVE Arts
Students are led through a process called storyweaving - a theatrical technique used by Spiderwoman Theater to share our own stories, using gesture, voice, song, movement and repetition. Yvette Nolan and Michelle Olson, both First Nations theatre artists, use this technique to create work to share stories from their Indigenous perspective. Together, students and artists examine our personal connections to this land and to each other and weave them together to create a short theatre/movement piece that explores how we live together here in a good way.
