For Teachers

Bring Your Students To See Pawâkan Macbeth!

Reneltta Arluk’s innovative adaptation of Macbeth is set in Plains Cree territory among the plagues, fights and famines of the 1870’s. Pawâkan Macbeth transforms Shakespeare’s darkest play using Cree cosmology. This includes the Witiko, a terrifying spirit that consumes a human being’s existence. The more this spirit eats, the hungrier it gets. Arluk worked with Cree speakers and elders to develop the play’s Cree language elements and protocols. The play combines Shakespeare’s language, modern English, and Cree-infused poetry and prose.

This is thrilling and visually stunning production features 11 Cree-heritage actors from across Canada.

Your students can be among the first audiences to see a phenomenal and important theatrical work, at a significantly discounted ticket price.
