A few months ago, we spoke with Barry Bilinsky, assistant director for Pawâkan Macbeth – A Cree Takeover. It’s the story of Macbeth, set in Cree territory in 1870s, pre-Treaty Alberta (featuring the cannibal spirit, Wihtiko), put on by Reneltta Arluk’s Akpik Theatre.

This Friday (May 1) at 8 pm, the National Arts Centre will present a live staged reading of the play as part of #CanadaPerforms, a short-term relief fund that pays professional Canadian artists and professionally published authors for their online performances. Watch the timeless story told anew on Akpik’s Facebook page.
