Abstract

Abstract:

Lysistrata was adapted for Bard on the Beach in 2018 by Lois Anderson and Jennifer Wise. In this article, Anderson discusses how the production, which was performed in Vanier Park on the unceded traditional territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish nations, had to open up to include the voice of Musqueam actor Quelemia Sparrow.

Sparrow, an Indigenous actor working in Canadian theatre, writes about finding agency working in Canadian colonial culture. She shares the truth about the erasure of sən̓aʔqw which is now called Vanier Park.
