Samqwan - Encore
Approximate running time: 2 hours
40 Bentinck Street
Sydney NS B1P 1G2
SAMQWAN Created and Choreographed by Sarah Prosper
After a SOLD-OUT run in August 2021, we are delighted to present an updated and revised encore production of this stunning production!
Samqwan is the Mi’kmaq word for water and this new multi-disciplinary show, created and choreographed by Eskasoni artist Sarah Prosper, will inspire and welcome you to experience the value of water from an indigenous perspective; its sacredness, purposes, and to show the gift of walking in two worlds but also the responsibilities.
Ke'aknutama'tinej - Can we talk Ke'amakaltinej - Can we dance
Samqwan will feature an integrated cast of local performers and returns to the HAT stage before traveling to the Neptune Theatre as part of their ACT 2 Season.
Tickets: FREE thanks to Radical Access May 5 to 8, 2022
Thursday to Saturday at 7:30PM Sunday at 3:30PM and 7:30PM
~ An Experiment in Radical Access ~
In the light of this unprecedented time, we are trying something Radical: We have become the first Professional, Community-Funded Theatre in Canada. Thanks to ongoing monthly donations from people across Cape Breton and - indeed - North America, we have committed to offering all 12 Mainstage plays and musicals free of charge for a year. If we can maintain or grow this model, we would love nothing more than to continue this model forever. But in order to do that, we need your help.
We aren't going to charge you a cent for this ticket, but if you haven't done so already, we highly encourage you to go to our website and make a pledge for ongoing monthly dontions (you can also do a one-time donation if you prefer).
1) A tax-deductible charitable receipt 2) Advance access to book for future Mainstage Productions 3) The knowledge that you are supporting a professional arts organization in downtown Sydney and helping create free access for everyone in the community.
For more information or to make your pledge, check out: http://www.highlandartstheatre.com/ray2
Tickets: FREE OF CHARGE (although suggested donations of $25/ticket are welcome)
If you book your tickets and then do not need them, please let us know no less than 6 hours before showtime by e-mailing us at: email@example.com
Please note: Protocols may be updated to reflect current NS protocols
We are very grateful to have had such low cases of COVID-19 in Cape Breton, however, it is essential that we do not become overly relaxed or complacent. We will be complying with all provincial and federal recommendations and guidelines (and then some!). Please be advised that protocols could change at any time pending provincial order or increased risk.
Starting October 4th, the NS government has outlined that all patrons must be able to show proof of double vaccination for COVID-19 in order to be admitted. Hand sanitizer will be required upon entry. Masks will be mandatory upon entrance and throughout performance, with the exception of when eating or drinking. All facilities will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between performances.
We are committed to keeping our audience, staff, and artists safe and secure. If you have any feedback or concerns, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much and see you soon at the HAT!
