Mark Your Calendar: “You used to call me Marie…” is an epic Métis love story

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      An epic Métis love story will be making its world premiere in Vancouver in April at The Cultch. You used to call me Marie… transcends time in a story that follows two souls over eight different lifetimes, and marks eight distinct time periods from before and after the colonization of Treaty 6 Territory—where many Métis folks come from. 

      Produced by Savage Society, the play is written by Jessie Award-winning playwright Tai Amy Grauman and inspired by the stories of her own family members, the Callihoo women.

      Delineating the rise of Métis nations across the plains—from the oppressive fur trade to the political uprising of the Métis Association of Alberta—the story begins at creation and concludes in present time, sharing love stories over generations.

      The performances will host post-show talk backs on April 21 and 23.
