The artists in the 2021/2022 Signature Series will make you think, make you laugh, make you feel, and make you want to get up and dance! With stories about growing up Indigenous, the environment, the importance of words, navigating the pandemic, and living life to the fullest, there is something for everyone in this exciting season. This all-Canadian season will bring us together with stories when we have been spending so much time apart.
