About the Play:
"The Drum is Calling you Home" (working title) is a fusion of traditional storytelling, concert, ceremony and theatre. This new play in development takes the audience on a journey of the human spirit depicted in four rounds; each round tells Marcel’s story from a young man discovering his aboriginal roots to making peace with the inner callings of his heritage and the desires that propel him forward to building a meaningful life. This story is an awakening of one man’s spirit to his community and to his roots. It gives the audience a glimpse into what it not only means to be aboriginal, but what it means to be human, the difficult choices each of us face within the raw and challenging realities of life. The decision to follow his heart and spirit leading him home, is echoed from within.
