The inaugural Indigenous Theatre (IT) season will open at Canada’s National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa next year, a place where English-speaking and French-speaking theatre artists have thrived for five decades. IT’s artistic director Kevin Loring (who will also be speaking at the upcoming New York 2019 ISPA Congress!) and managing director Lori Marchand talk about reclaiming lost voices and creating a future in the context of a harrowing past.
