BUG

Lazaridis Hall, Tom Patterson Theatre
October 16 – October 18
Various Times
The tree is sick
The poison cycled so much
Sickness was planted in us
And we are trying to get well

bug is the story of a girl and her mother, both fighting the effects of colonialism on their bodies. They are followed by Manidoons, a physical manifestation of trauma that crawls across generations. Created and performed by former company member Yolanda Bonnell, this Dora Mavor Moore Award-nominated performance draws on the strength and resilience of Indigenous women as they grapple with a painful past and carve out their place to survive.
