Rocko and Nakota: Tales From the Land

Indigenized Indigenous Theatre—School of Contemporary Dancers

To a young enthusiast of comic books, heroes wear capes, masks and they’re invincible. This tale of discovery teaches the child that heroes take all forms, come from unlikely places, and sometimes in the guise of family. This production gives you a glimpse into the lessons of life and a look into the stories of our Indigenous culture.

Josh Languedoc delivers a flawless narrative as he smoothly transitions between the characters. His commanding voice takes you into the moment and cradles you along the journey. This excellent effort should be on your viewing list.
