Opening Exhibition: Jason Carter

The Indigenous Art Series

Curated by Hunter Cardinal

April 26 – May 14, 2022

Theatre Network is excited to announce the opening of the Miller Art Gallery! This new venture for Theatre Network is generously supported by Briana & Jonathan Miller, the namesakes of the gallery. This new space allows us to support even more artists and expand our programming into the visual arts space.

Curated by Jared Tabler, the Peck Visual Arts program is delighted to present its first exhibition, sponsored by Syncrude Canada, artist Jason Carter. In keeping with our values, Jared’s curatorial vision for our program is to celebrate contemporary Canadian
art and artists. Additionally, thanks to the generous support of Syndrude Canada, we are able to share that Jason Carter’s work will be the first in our Murray Permanent Art Collection for Theatre Network.

William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, A Radical Retelling by Cliff Cardinal

The Indigenous Art Series

Curated by Hunter Cardinal

April 26 – May 14, 2022

Theatre Network is pleased to present the Crow’s Theatre production of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, A Radical Retelling by Cliff Cardinal.

The title of William Shakespeare’s As You Like It holds a double meaning that famously teases, this is a play to please all tastes. But is that possible?

In this radical retelling, acclaimed Indigenous creator and cultural provocateur Cliff Cardinal delights in black humour, difficult subject matter, and raw emotions.

“It is anarchic and tender and seething and raw. And important for us now. – Istvan Reviews

“Unlike any other production of the play, past or future. NNNN” – Now Magazine

Born on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Cardinal (Stitch, Huff, and Cliff Cardinal’s CBC Special) studied playwriting at the National Theatre School of Canada and is an associate artist at VideoCabaret, where he develops his new work.


Writer: Cliff Cardinal

Featuring: cast will be announced at each performance.
