Join us as we open the 2021-22 ORIGINS Festival with an online welcoming event, including a performance of the short play KATHARSIS by Yvette Nolan (Algonquin, Canada) – a digital love letter to a theatre left empty by the pandemic.

The 2021-22 Festival will offer an unprecedented and evolving year-long programme, transforming digital and physical spaces into vibrant sites of creative enquiry and performance by leading Indigenous artists and thinkers.

Informed by a decade of Festival activity, ORIGINS 2021-22 arrives at a crucial moment for the planet. Covid-19 has clearly demonstrated the fragility of our way of life. Climate change, which shares many of Covid’s causes, poses an existential threat. #BlackLivesMatter has exposed the fundamental injustices that underpin the histories from which the globally dominant culture grew. These challenges are not only political and scientific, but fundamentally cultural, forming the three key themes that will lead the Festival’s journey of enquiry through the year ahead:

  • Covid
  • Climate Change
  • Colonialism

We hope you will join us to experience another way of living.
