Governor-General award-winning playwright featured in theatre series in Nanaimo

TheatreOne’s Emerging Voices presents Kim Senklip Harvey’s Break Horizons on April 12

TheatreOne’s next Emerging Voices event brings a Governor-General award-winning storyteller to Nanaimo.

Kim Senklip Harvey, a Syilx and Tsilhqot’in playwright and director, presents Break Horizons on April 12 at the Port Theatre lobby.

Harvey won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama for her play Kamloopa: An Indigenous Matriarch Story, making her the first Indigenous woman to win the award, according to a press release from the University of Victoria.

A TheatreOne press release noted that Break Horizons is a “futurist story and a moving, boundary-breaking adventure” following five Indigenous femmes living in a minimum-security prison and combatting persecution.

“While there, they voyage into the deep space within their spirits. Armed with the indestructible force that is Indigenous love, this cosmic expedition rocks us with a multiverse of music, dance and story,” the release notes.

WHAT’S ON … Kim Senklip Harvey’s Break Horizons on April 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Port Theatre lobby. Admission by donation.
