This Season young and family audiences across Canada and East Coast USA will experience Medicine Bear, a story that shares important lessons through rich, visually stimulating set design, engaging performance and storytelling. We are excited to be entering our inaugural season with Prologue for the Performing Arts presenting Medicine Bear in an elementary school setting.
Through whimsical music, dance and storytelling, Medicine Bear weaves into one magical narrative traditional Iroquoian stories: how the Bear Clan came to be known as the "Keeper of the Medicines" and the hunter who discovered the gift of healing. Following oral traditional practices, Medicine Bear teaches virtues of compassion, thankfulness and respect for nature in a way that is playful and thought provoking for young and family audiences. Medicine Bear entertains while expanding understanding and appreciation for the Arts and encourages sharing of First Nations culture to future generations.
