About the Event

The story of Canada’s first Indian Residential school, the Mohawk Institute (aka “The Mush Hole”), honours the resilience, courage and strength of residential-school survivors. This award-winning theatre piece created by Six Nations choreographer Santee Smith is performed by the internationally acclaimed Kaha:wi Dance Theatre. Visceral performances by an all-Indigenous cast, cinematic imagery and a haunting musical score transport audiences into the bricks and mortar of the school, in an unforgettable story about finding hope and light in the darkest of places. Presented in partnership with the St. Clair Catholic District School Board (Mature content: recommended for ages 13+).
