Axis Theatre’s production of Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish by
Joseph A. Dandurand (Vancouver)

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 careful, stealing from her is dangerous business! When Th’owxiya catches a hungry mouse, Kw’atel, stealing a piece of cheese she demands two child spirits be brought for her to eat or else, she will eat Kw’atel’s whole family. Desperate to save her family, Kw’atel sets forth on an intense journey gaining knowledge, understanding and forgiveness along the way.
