FROZEN RIVER
nîkwatin sîpiy

A MANITOBA THEATRE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE PRODUCTION

CO-WRITTEN BY MICHAELA WASHBURN, JOELLE PETERS AND CARRIE COSTELLO

In nîkwatin sîpiy, Grandmother Moon tells the story of two eleven-year-olds, born under the same blood moon, but in different parts of the world. This new play follows their stories as they meet in a forest, and that of their descendants who meet in the present day in what is known as Manitoba. A broken promise from the past can be righted when there is finally an openness to learn from those who have protected and honoured the waterways for centuries.

CTYP strongly believes this show is relevant for all ages, including those in Middle School and High School. Because of this, the Educator Guide for this show will be split into three sections: PRIMARY, JUNIOR, and INTERMEDIATE lessons – for classrooms 8 and under, 9 to 11, and 12+.
