The Carousel Theatre for Young People is presenting Salmon Girl which explores the world of water and salmon. A young girl makes some extraordinary friendships when she dives into a magical adventure where the delicate balance of nature could change her life forever. Through theatre, dance, music and puppetry, this piece follows the journey of a young girl into a visually stunning adventure that shares a First Nations perspective on the importance of Salmon.
Margie has never given much thought about the river or the living creatures within it until she falls into the river and becomes a salmon. The physical changes are not the only changes she experiences. Margie learns about her new friends that live in the water and how the river is a life-force for all. This beautiful tale encourages audiences to consider their own relationship to the world around them.
Choreographer Michelle Olson from the Tr’ondek Hwech’in First Nation and playwright Quelemia Sparrow from the Musquem First Nation bring together their respective cultural perspectives and stories to create a piece that is both meaningful and delightful to all audiences.
Salmon Girl is a Raven Spirit Dance production. Created by Michelle Olson and Quelemia Sparrow.
Salmon Girl is directed by Quelemia Sparrow and Michelle Olson and features Tasha Faye-Evans, Jeanette Kotowich, Gloria May Eshkibok, Donna Soares and Taran Kootenhayoo.
