About the Show

Imaginative and creative, Sedna is an Indigenous tale told through magnificent large-scale lantern puppets, and a sweeping musical score transporting the audience through a beautiful telling in a magical outdoor setting.  The acclaimed and talented cast brings this contemporary tale of Sedna to life.  On a winter night, an Indigenous woman named Selia, looking for work, wrestles with the pros and cons of an impending pipeline coming through her peoples’ territory. On the day of the project’s ground breaking ceremony a cataclysmic storm brings her face to face with Sedna, Goddess of the Arctic Sea, who opens her eyes to a wider perspective on the environment and all who depend on it.  The story includes the Inuktitut language and a new original score by Payette. Sedna is spectacularly theatrical experience that will open minds and hearts of all ages.
