“Come and spend a night at The Dirty Indian Soirée, where an ordinary hospital waiting room is transformed into an underground cabaret performance venue. You will be taken on a journey which will explore the hierarchy and we and weaponization of the healthcare industry. Experience tales of heartbreak, fear, love, trauma, healing, and all of those times we have been made to feel like worthless Dirty Indians.”
Each September, GTNT recruits Indigenous youth between the ages 16 – 25, for the Circle of Voices training program The program enlists cultural leaders, theatre artists, and career development professionals to lead workshops for the participants. This program culminates in a production of a original play created by a playwright in conjunction with the participants.
This year’s COV production themes: Discrimination and implicit bias in the health care system.
