Advance for NAPI at Lunchbox

“I may go in circles in my brain, but I was always real good at directions.”

Part of OLD MAN: THE NAPI PROJECT, a co-operative Artist in Residence program with Making Treaty 7, we are pleased to welcome the World Premiere of SNOWBLIND, written and performed by Zach Running Coyote, to the Lunchbox stage.

Inspired by the Blackfoot story Napi and the Compassionate Woman, SNOWBLIND uses traditional storytelling, poetry, song and dance to explore the impact of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) on the Indigenous community. Told with humour and heartbreak through the memories of three characters, SNOWBLIND uncovers how our choices, our mistakes, and our history can lead us to understanding.
