One woman's journey towards spiritual reclamation
By Quelemia Sparrow
Directed by Kim Senklip Harvey

March 19 - 28, 2020 • Studio B
In Skyborn, a woman falls through a black hole in her little blue house on the reserve. There, she meets her Granny Rose in the shape of a wolf, who guides her on a spirit canoe journey to retrieve her soul from the land of the dead.
Musqueam writer and performer Quelemia Sparrow has created an unforgettable adventure story—an odyssey full of magic, beauty, and power.
“When a person had a spirit sickness, it was said that their soul had left their body. In Skyborn, we use theatre to embody a ritual that is a personal and familial odyssey of reclamation of self, and land, and blood memory.” —Quelemia Sparrow
