WCT presents Axis Theatre Company’s production of:
Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish
By Joseph A. Dandurand
October 21, 2017 – 1:00pm & 4:00pm
Six Storytellers from the Kwantlen First Nations Village of Squa’lets, spin the tale of Th’owxiya: the Hungry Feast Dish. The mouth of Th’owxiya holds the most wonderful foods from around the world. But if you steal from her, you will pay a terrible price, for she has developed a taste for children! When Th’owxiya catches a hungry mouse stealing a piece of cheese from her mouth she is furious. To appease the goddess, Kw’at’el (the mouse) must find two young spirits as an offering before the second moon rises or she will eat Kw’at’el’s whole family! With the help of two Spa:th (bears), Sqeweqs (raven) and Sasq’ets (sasquatch), Kw’at’el sets forth on a journey for knowledge and forgiveness. Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish has shades of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale and the First Nations story The Wild Woman of the Woods, told through mask and music.
Age recommendation: 6 to 12
