The Confederation Centre Young Company is one of our country’s leading performance-based training programs. With a strong focus on all three performance disciplines, 13 young artists from across Canada gather to share their life experiences and share the stories that define us as Canadians. This upbeat musical weaves music and dance through stories about our collective Canadian identity.
This year’s young company presents the production Aqsarniit (“awe-saw-nee”), the Inuktitut word used to describe the northern lights. This high-energy musical re-examines Canada’s past through the varied lenses of today’s youth sharing the stories we hope to be told in the future. As the cast will show you “because now we know.”
