We invite our audience to join us in experiencing a multi-media style performance utilizing theatre, music, dance and visuals created by the stories from over 70 Indigenous Youth. At the end of the performance, the actors invite you to virtually participate in finding other scenarios, solutions, to change characters choices in three key scenes.
To avoid paying the ticket service fee, please feel free to reserve your tickets through email@example.com.
The performance dates are December 17-18, 8PM CST and December 19, 2PM CST. You will receive the live stream link 2hrs before the performance.
You can view the performance through two different options: YouTube or StreamYard. YouTube viewers can interact in real-time using the chat function which can be brought up on the screen, or StreamYard viewers can be brought on screen with video and audio to interact in person. Facilitated by a live host – called The Joker in Forum Theatre – to discuss and reframe scenarios and interact with the student’s suggestions and questions.
If you have any questions or concerns leading up to our virtual performance of Seven Visions, feel free to reach out to our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org

Aqqalu Meekis (Ensemble)
Named after an Inuit actor from Greenland, Aqqalu got his start in acting with a cut, small role in the 2003 film Stryker. Since then, he has been active in various film, TV and theatre roles such as a sniper with the Canadian Armed Forces in Paul Gross' Hyena Road, Donny in George F. Walker's Adult Entertainment, Katurian in Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman, and even as a nameless extra (no role is too small) on the set of Outlander, on location in Scotland. Aqqalu would like to thank Sarasvati for the chance to break free from pandemic-induced cabin fever.
Joshua Ranville (Facilitator/Ensemble)
Joshua’s first-ever acting experience was auditioning for a play called “The Rememberer” in 1998 at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People (MTYP). This happened to be where he had the pleasure of meeting Tracey Nepinak and working with her for the first time as she was also a part of that cast. That was when Josh caught the theatre bug and he hasn’t been able to stop acting ever since. The opportunity to work with the amazing Seven Visions cast is a breath of air for Josh since quarantine was feeling like a creative vacuum. Yay for this project, yay for theatre!
