Our Family Series is filled with professional and youth-focused theatre, music, and dance performances for the whole family… and early enough to get home to bed on time! Th'OWIXYA: The Hungry Feast Dish by Axis Theatre Company Indigenous storytellers spin a tale from the Kwantlen First Nations Village of Squa’lets about Th’owxiya, an old and powerful spirit that inhabits a feast dish. Her dish holds beautiful foods from around the world - but be careful! stealing from her is dangerous business... because Th’owxiya has developed a taste for children. When Th’owxiya catches a hungry mouse, Kw’atel, stealing a piece of cheese from her mouth she demands two child spirits be brought for her to eat, or else she will eat Kw’atel’s whole family. Ignorant to her power, yet desperate to save her family, Kw’atel sets forth on an intense journey to fulfill Th’owxiya’s demand. With the help of the Sqeweqs (Raven), two Spa:th (bears), and Sasq’ets (sasquatch), Kw’at’el finds alternate gifts to appease the goddess and the journey becomes one of knowledge, understanding and forgiveness. Sometimes tricking an ancient spirit is the best step forward!
