EVERYTHING IS A CIRCLE
Bonnie Morris from Illusion and Sharon Day of the Indigenous Peoples' Task Force spoke about working together which led to Bonnie, Karen Gundlach and Kathy Anlauf partnering with the Ikidowin Youth Theater Troupe under the direction of Curtis Kirby to create an adaptation of Illusion's acclaimed TOUCH piece. The Ikidowin invited members of the Grandmothers of the Ogitchidakwe Council to share their stories and experiences with us. As we heard their stories, the play grew to include the legacy of historical trauma. Friday April 6th 2018, ten young Teens and three Elders performed Everything is a Circle and were warmly received by the Minnesota Indian Woman Sexual Assault Coalition Conference at the Grand Casino in Onamia. Illusion and Ikidowin are planning more performances of Everything is a Circle . Details to follow.
