Event Notes


Highland Arts Theatre Presents



Story by Shawnee Paul and Sarah Prosper

Directed and Choreographed by Sarah Prosper

Music Composed by Shawnee Paul


From the creator of SAMQWAN comes a brand new multi-disciplinary piece transcending theatre, music, and dance.

The creators describe the multidisciplinary show as follows:

Our new show is called Mimikej (Butterfly) which aims to take you on a journey of recollection in Mi’kma’ki. Where fiction meets non-fiction, this story takes you to a new world, where people share along the way who they are through music and dance. A tribute show to the events and impacts of Centralization.”

Praise for Samqwan: Winner of Outstanding Choreography and Outstanding Independent Production (2022 Robert Merritt Awards, Theatre Nova Scotia). Toured to Neptune Theatre and the Confederation Centre for the Arts (Canadian Games 2023).
