A Professional Premiere. God's Lake is an original work of documentary theatre about the strength and resilience of the people in the remote fly-in reserve of God’s Lake Narrows, Manitoba following traumatic events of unresolved justice and a complex and challenging past. A rare glimpse into the lived reality of this community is told verbatim from interviews conducted with its members over six months in 2017. God’s Lake is a collaboration between playwright Francesca Albright and award-winning Swampy Cree filmmaker Kevin Lee Burton. Directed by Atomic Vaudeville’s Britt Small. Dramaturgy by Gordon Pengilly. Using original live music by Ziibiwan + Melody McKiver, heightened physicality, and stunning visual imagery, God's Lake offers a unique opportunity to witness the complex issues facing people living in a remote community and provides an understanding for those who might have no comprehension of the reserve system, let alone what it’s like to live on a remote First Nations reserve.
