“Finding Home” is the story of Dorothy, who is swept up into a whirlwind of Foster homes through what is known as the 80’s Scoop. As she loses everything, she seeks to find who she is, and where she belongs through the distorted lens of a colonialist mindset. A mindset that is intent on keeping her small and irrelevant. An audience can expect to find themselves, swept along with her in this journey to finding her sense of inner power, true identity and what the words “No place like home” really mean.

“My show is like Wizard of Oz with an Indigenous and streetwise Dorothy.”

Smudging is part of this performance. There may be some scent of sage and smoke in the space. There will be no alcohol service during this show.

About the Artist
Elowynn Rose is a Métis artist living and practicing her art on the Lekwungen Territories of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations (Victoria, British Columbia). Having participated in various residencies over the last 3 years, ranging from learning exchanges and mentorships in theatre to developed dance works for presentation, to an individual experimental practice that envelopes film, song, and clown. She seeks to access and merge the visible and the invisible realms to bring awareness, transformation and wholeness of varying societal narratives.
