Elapultiek (ehl-ah-bool-dee-egg) - "we are looking towards" -marks the first time Two Planks and a Passion Theatre has commissioned an Indigenous playwright from Nova Scotia to create a new work for the company. The show was a great success during our 2018 Summer Season and we are so pleased to bring it back for a special 2 shows at our fireside.

In the time of Idle No More, a young Mi’kmaw drum singer and a Euro-Nova Scotian biologist meet at dusk each day to count a population of endangered Chimney Swifts. As the relationship deepens over time, they struggle with their differing views of the world. Each ‘count night’ reveals a deeper complexity of connection to land, history, and ecology, and of reconciliation on a personal level.

Shalan Joudry is an oral storyteller, hand-drum singer and poet from the traditional district of Kespukwitk (southwest Nova Scotia). Following years of raising children, performing, writing, and ecology work, Shalan now lives and works in her community of Bear River First Nation, sharing messages of reconnecting to both land and culture.
