Native Earth Performing Arts is Paprika’s 2016-2017 Festival Partner. We are proud to present the 15th annual Paprika Festival in partnership with Native Earth Performing Arts.
Native Earth Performing Arts is Canada’s oldest professional Indigenous theatre company. Currently in our 33rd year, we are dedicated to developing, producing and presenting professional artistic expressions of the Indigenous experience in Canada.
Through stage productions (theatre, dance and multi-disciplinary art), new script development, apprenticeships and internships, Native Earth seeks to fulfill a community of artistic visions. It is a vision that is inclusive and reflective of the artistic directions of members of the Indigenous community who actively participate in the arts.
Theatre Passe Muraille (TPM) believes there should be a more diverse representation of artists, audience members, and stories in our theatre in Canada. TPM aspires to be a leader locally, nationally and internationally in establishing, promoting, and embracing collaborative and inclusive theatre practices that support and ignite the voices of unique artists, communities and audiences.
