As part of her interdisciplinary studies class, Stratford Central SS student Brontae Hunter wrote and directed a piece of theatre to spark discussion about Canada’s missing and murdered indigenous women entitled ‘For Our Stolen Sisters’.
The multi-act production featured a wide array of artistic performances in dance, live music, duets, dramatic theatre, and spoken word poetry. The production transcended cultural barriers and brought to light important issues in our country that are often not given proper attention. While thematically somber, the beauty of the indigenous cultures was displayed through traditional dance, music, apparel, and more. Brontae’s aim was to bring about crisis awareness while reconnecting the audience with the rich cultural roots of Canada’s indigenous population.
We are extremely proud of everyone involved in the production and would like to thank them for all of their hard work.
