Neestanan Presents: The Gravedigger
The Gravedigger is a one act, one person show. A man returns to his village after being away for decades. He has returned to fulfill a childhood promise he made to himself. A promise he made after hearing a story from his grandmother. His world is fraught with battles and hardships. He has many times been beaten to the ground, he is tired but not defeated. Hoping his return to his childhood village might provide him comfort and answers. The village he left is no longer recognizable and is but a memory. The people he knew are now lying in the graveyard he stands in. Upon his arrival he is given the position of gravedigger. A position recently vacated by the death of Samuel, the previous gravedigger. We join him as he talks with the spirits of the graveyard, made up of the audience, and with the spirits of his family and friends.

We are proud in acknowledging that we are in Treaty 1 territory and that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
