Alanis King

Alanis King

I felt it imperative to champion Anishnaabemowin preservation through this art form and oral tradition, some of the plays do not have a documented script because of that process, it was all memory at rehearsals, the fluent actors felt it inside their bones. We entertained a lot of people. I live to create onstage our history intertwined with our mythology, and put it into a story so it lifts off the page and takes on a life form
