Time Immemorial play tells history of an Inupiaq Village
on Alaska's North Slope through the experiences of two characters, Tulu and Miti. The play deals with changes experienced by the Inupiaq, post-contact with Western culture. In the Inupiaq culture, it is believed that a spirit is reborn each generation, thus, Tulu and Miti are the same spirit throughout the play, in different manifestations, brother, sister, husband, wife, daughter, father, etc. The thought provoking play is written and performed by internationally-recognized Alaskan actors Jack Dalton Allison Warden.
Time Immemorial: February 18 and 19, 7:30 PM at Bunnell Street Arts Center. Suggested ticket prices: $15 general; $12 Bunnell members; $8 youth (18 and under) -- all are welcome! Pay as you can. Tickets are available only at Bunnell. Parental Advisory - difficult themes.
Time Immemorial was commissioned by Cyrano's Theatre Company in Anchorage, Alaska, in the summer of 2008, as one of five plays highlights the cultures and history of Alaska in celebration of Alaska's 50th Anniversary of Statehood. The commission and production were made in part to a grant from the Alaska Humanities Forum and the Rasmuson Foundation. Homer performances sponsored in part by WESTAF TourWest and the National Endowment for the Arts. Dalton and Warden will spend the week of Feb. 14-18 at Fireweed Academy as Artist in Schools in Homer.
