Mystical Story Told On Vanier Stage Tonight

A special performance comes to Vanier Hall tonight. The public is invited to come see the Indigenously themed performance "Qwalena: The Wild Woman Who Steals Children."

Doors open at 6:30pm and the performance goes from 7-8:30pm. (Latecomers cannot enter.)

This performance by storyteller Dallas Yellowfly is a unique stage presentation.

"Yellowfly tells a scary story of a girl who is born disfigured and bullied by kids in her community. She runs away to the forest where she stays hidden. Over time, Qwalena becomes the wild woman who makes whistling sounds and steals children who search for her in the woods. During the presentation, Yellowfly uses multimedia elements of video and sound that fills the theatre with a dynamic atmosphere."

There is mature subject matter to this morality tale. There is a trigger warning for loud drumming, strobe lights, fog, scenes of domestic violence, drug and alcohol use, and sexual abuse.
