Returning to the grounds of Fort York National Historic Site, the Talking Treaties Spectacle by Jumblies Theatre is an outdoor pageant exploring the treaty history of the Toronto area through words, song, movement and spectacle. Rooted in oral history and community collaboration, Talking Treaties takes audiences on a journey through the place we share and the way it came to be. Inspired by historical research, a team of professional and community performers use vignettes to explore The Dish With One Spoon, The Toronto Purchase, The Treaty of Niagara and more, with humour, boldness and beaver puppets. The Talking Treaties Spectacle was first presented at Fort York in June 2017, as part of the Indigenous Arts Festival and Jumblies’ Touching Ground Festival of new works. See Jumbliestheatre.org for ticketing information.
Please note: This is a 3rd party event. Fort York will be open to the general public from 10 a.m. to 4/5 p.m. Regular admission applies.
