Without the beating drum, words do not exist.

Delphine is a young Wolastoqey (Maliseet) girl, with a head full of dreams and a fierce determination. Since her father lost the drum of his deceased muhsums, Delphine has been dead set on finding it at all costs. One autumn day, as the wind picks up, Delphine is transported to the world of the forest spirits. There she meets the mischievous porcupine, the opera-singing owl, and Kiwahq, the terrible beast with a heart of ice! Will she manage to overcome the challenges of the forest to find her drum?

With his play TOQAQ MECIMI PUWIHT / Delphine rêve toujours, Wolastoqey playwright Dave Jenniss addresses the themes of transmission and identity and reclaims the language of his ancestors in order to make it resonate. This bilingual show in French and Wolastoqey is performed by Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists.

Ondinnok and La Vieille 17 are honoured to be able to create in Tio’Ta:ke and Odawa, magnificent territories where the Kanien’kehà:ka and Algonquin Anishinabe peoples have walked, dreamed and lived for millennia. Miigwetch! Nià:wen! Thank you!

Théâtre de la Vieille 17

Le Théâtre de la Vieille 17 est une compagnie de théâtre de création, ancrée en Ontario français et ouverte sur le monde. Un carrefour où se côtoient en toute complicité le théâtre jeune public et le théâtre grand public. La compagnie privilégie des prises de paroles qui jettent une lumière sur des sujets d’actualité et des préoccupations urgentes de la société dans laquelle nous vivons et travaillons afin d’alimenter la discussion et la réflexion. Assurer le rayonnement de ses spectacles et le talent et savoir-faire de ses artistes à l’échelle provinciale, nationale et parfois internationale fait partie intégrante de son mandat. 

Ondinnok

Ondinnok est un mot wendat désignant un rituel théâtral de guérison qui dévoile le désir secret de l’âme. Notre théâtre vise à reconquérir un imaginaire, une terre de rêve, à rapatrier une mémoire pour dégager un avenir. Voilà, c’est ça faire Ondinnok !   

Ondinnok est la première compagnie de théâtre francophone autochtone au Canada. Elle fut fondée par Yves Sioui Durand, Catherine Joncas et John Blondin, en 1985. Depuis 2017, le comédien, auteur de théâtre et scénariste Dave Jenniss est à la direction artistique de la compagnie.
