Top Indigenous artists seek Indigenous actresses

May 3, 2017

The Northern Arts and Cultural Centre wants two emerging First Nations, Inuit or Metis actresses from the Northwest Territories for a paid project exploring identity, Indigeneity and decolonization!


  • Write the play in 10 days at Blachford Lake Lodge in August
  • Rehearse for 10 days in Yellowknife right afterward
  • Take the stage when curtains rise at NACC in February
  • Then take the show to Montreal with Imago Theatre company


Interested? Come on down to the NACC second space (on the second floor of the centre square mall) for an audition June 6 to 7 from 4 to 8 p.m. if you’re in Yellowknife or send a video (max two minutes) if you’re from the communities. Show us yourself performing a play or telling a short story (it can be your own work or someone else’s). If you need a hand picking a script, let us know. 


Be sure to memorize the script and send videos to!
