The Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry and Camp Chief Hector YMCA announce Buffalo Belong for 17-18 year olds interested in performance art.

BUFFALO BELONG
Camp Chief Hector YMCA
August 6 – 25, 2017
Cost: $1800 with $500 covered by Canada Council Scholarship
Student cost: $1300 + GST

Space is limited to 16 
(Half will be First Nations, Metis or Inuit, and half Non-First Nations
with a gender equality amongst group)

This program is designed to bring High School students that are both First Nations, Metis, Inuit and Non-First Nations together with professional artists, teachers and Elders to work together to create a piece of theatre.

This will be a unique experience for all involved; the students, the artists and Elders, and will foster both your artistic and outdoor spirit. We are excited about the journey ahead and we hope you will join us!

Buffalo Belong is a program for any 17 or 18 year old who is interested in being apart of a theatre ensemble, doing vigorous theatre rehearsal, living in the outdoors and tackling the challenge of creating and performing a puppet –lantern performance that celebrates the Buffalo and their return to the National Parks. Students who are interested in learning more about the Buffalo and their role in the First Nations, Metis and Inuit culture and what they mean for all of us now.

Students do not need not to have experience in theatre, performance or the outdoors…however this is an asset. What is most important is that you are willing to learn, participate fully and to be a part of a group.
