A mortician falls in love with a man as she prepares his corpse for burial. She has three days until the funeral…but three days just isn’t enough. A punk rock musical inspired by true events, from the creators of Edgar Allan and The Legend of White Woman Creek.
“As unapologetic a piece of theater as I’ve ever seen. It takes a true story and tells it in an amazingly unique way, without commenting on its admittedly difficult subject matter.” – Cincinnati City Beat
“The gleeful crassness of the whole proceeding is hard to resist. The musical staging is endlessly inventive, Katie Hartman’s voice is a remarkable instrument” – Minnesota Playlist
“Hartman’s volcanic performance makes this uncomfortable material compelling. Explodes with all the anarchistic passion you could ask for… ” – Orlando Weekly
“It’s almost too weird for Fringe” – American Underground
Sunday, February 11 from 2:00PM – 5:00PM
in the Westbury Theatre
Tatawaw is an opportunity for businesses and non-profits to rediscover an ancient tradition of welcoming. Edmonton has a long history of welcoming diverse cultures to trade, share stories, and celebrate the bounty of the land. For thousands of years, the Plains Cree described this tradition, the spirit of welcoming, as “tatawaw” meaning “there is room for you, welcome.”
Through organizing a teaching roundtable, we provide a supportive, open place to learn about the Indigenous roots of welcoming and how we all can build on that knowledge to improve organizational or corporate culture and day-to-day operations. The result is an ongoing positive shift in perspective about the spaces we hold and make. Join the movement to make Canada what it was always meant to be: a welcoming and safe home for all.
