About:

There Is No Word For Wilderness is a land-based story walk brought to life with mask, puppetry and live music. It reflects one woman’s journey of getting lost to get found as nature reveals itself to her. 

Suitable for all ages and free to attend, this new play takes the audience on a trail adventure as the story unfolds around them. Centering around land/life connection it aims to raise awareness of the enormity of our problem with waste and over-consumption. Following each performance, Shelba Deer gives an Anishinaabe teaching and offering to Shkagamik-Kwe (Mother Earth).

There Is No Word For Wilderness was produced in 2017 for the 4Elements Festival on Manitoulin Island and in 2018 with Evergreen Brick Works and at Morningside Park with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
