The First Nations Performance Series was the third annual performance series organized by the grunt gallery. The program featured one evening of cabaret and ten evenings of solo performance, running from September 10th to 20th, 1992. This series featured First Nations artists and was a significant presentation of the diversity and scope of contemporary Native expression in performance.
We express ourselves in all mediums: visuals, performance, theatre, music, books and dance. In our role as caretakers of Turtle Island we seek to bridge the gap in understanding between all of us, to surmount the boundaries and barriers that artificially isolate us all. Our vision has endured. Our voices shall not be stilled. We urge you to come - know us. (Aiyanna Maracle, curatorial statement excerpt)
