The Mush Hole
23 April 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15 – $50
The Mush Hole is a theatrical dance performance about truths of Canada’s first Indian residential school, The Mohawk Institute. From 1828-1970, State and Church attempted to forcefully assimilate children from Six Nations and surrounding First Nations into Euro-Christian society and sever the continuity of culture from parent to child. The Mush Hole weaves through the traumatic memories of two generations of Survivors. Visceral performances by an all-Indigenous cast, cinematic imagery and musical score, catapult audiences into the bricks and mortar of the school. Created from Survivors testimonials, it is a story about hope and finding light in dark places.
