Rhythms and Stories of the Red Earth

Dynamic shows from Island performers will bring lively dance and music to downtown Charlottetown this summer at Confederation Centre of the Arts. The 2024 Charlottetown Festival will feature productions at the Centre’s Outdoor Amphitheatre, a venue known for accessible and family-friendly performances. The shows are free, however, donations are welcome.

Celebrating over a decade as Atlantic Canada’s premier Indigenous theatre company, the Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors return to The Charlottetown Festival for the fourth year with the new show Rhythms and Stories of the Red Earth. The performance will share the history of Indigenous peoples on Epekwitk (Prince Edward Island) through stories, songs and beautiful traditional dance. This fun and interactive show features colourful regalia, traditional instruments, and teachings for all ages. Performances run at noon on select dates from July 4–26.

The Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors company includes Caleb Acorn, Keegan Bernard, Rory Cote, Tristan Harrison, Mike Julian, Britt Lush, Sean Lush, Alex Maclean, Julie Pellissier-Lush, and Richard Pellissier-Lush. They are joined by several local youth, including Caseon Acorn, Makayla Bernard, Warren Bernard, Stakayla Brown, Ellie Bourque, Liam Bourque, Sophia Bourque, Esme Davidson, Paisley Labobe, Talia Labobe, Miah Lush, Aandeg MacDonald, Jaylynn Tuplin, Bailey Sark, Layla Sark, Taite Wooldridge, and Taya Wooldridge.
