Stories from the Bush
The Woodland Plays of De-ba-jeh-mu-jig Theatre Company
Table of contents
The work done by De-ba-jeh-mu-jig Theatre makes a significant contribution to Aboriginal theatre, culture, Canadian theatre and society as a whole. The six plays gathered here were chosen based on their relevancy and significance to the Aboriginal culture and identity, as well as the many milestones they provide in the history of the company and the artistic growth of several of the artists who are leading the artistic direction of the company today.
Among the plays in this collection are the first play to ever be professionally produced in Ojibway, the first play created using the Four Directions Creation Process, and other works that focus on the foundation teachings of Odawa Midewin, using traditional stories to create theatre and explore modern themes on time-honoured values.
