Vermillion is a stop on Spiderwoman Theater’s 2024 Midwest tour!

Spiderwoman Theater’s fabric workshop invites participants to tell their stories as they sit and work with their hands. Using buttons, ribbons, and shards of torn fabric, attendees can create their own quilt square out of the scraps. Stitching together what has been torn apart, we will share stories of our mothers, grandmothers, and those who gave birth to us. Refreshments will be shared to make a comfortable environment so that participants can connect to the people in the room, to the space they’re in, and to the land.

The workshop is free and open to all.

It is an accompanying event to two performances Spiderwoman Theater’s Misdemeanor Dream, Friday, Feb 23, and Saturday, Feb 24, at 7:30pm both nights: https://fb.me/e/6fNVOMtwT

Vermillion is able to welcome Spiderwoman Theater locally with the support of the USD Department of Theatre, USD Native Student Services, Vermillion Cultural Association, Vermillion Public Library, USD Women in Philanthropy, and the SD Arts Council.

“Fabric spans time, space, and geography . . . It represents the legacy of our histories as Indigenous people, and as we sew the threads pieces and shards of our stories, we are stitching the past to the present and connecting us to the future.” Penny Couchie, arts practitioner of Ojibway and Mohawk ancestry from Nipissing First Nation, Ontario
