Th’woziya – The Hungry Feast Dish
First Nations storytellers spin a tale of misadventure and giving back to the earth for theatregoers of all ages.
When you take something from the earth, you must always give something back. That is the theme of Kwantlen First Nations story of Th’owxiya, (Tho-WOX-eeya), an ancient ogress with a taste for… children! The Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre proudly presents Axis Theatre’s award-winning Th’owxiya – The Hungry Feast Dish on Sunday, November 6, 2022, at 2:00PM as the first performance of the 2022-23 SPOTLIGHT Kids Series.
Come enjoy the traditional Coast Salish and Sto:lo music, masks, and imagery while learning how Raven (Sqeweqs), Bear (Spa:th), and Sasquatch (Sasq’ets) trick a hungry spirit and save Kw’at’el and their family from becoming the feast! Shades of Grimm’s fairy tales combined with the northwest First Nations’ stories about the Wild Woman of the Woods give Th’owxiya a somewhat menacing persona, but this is balanced by the lightness and humour that keeps the show from being too scary for little theatregoers.
The show runs 45 minutes with no intermission and is recommended for ages 5 to 15 years old.
