September 25, 2021


*This is a free event.

Madeline Terbasket (they/them) is a two-spirit Syilx, Ho-Chunk, Anishinaabe performing artist that explores themes of cultural identity and mental health in their work. Madeline was in the Acting for Stage and Screen program at Capilano University. They discovered a passion for clowning and stand-up. They express their comedy by telling traditional Okanagan coyote stories. In 2017, Madeline was in šxʷʔam̓ət (home) with Theatre for Living, directed by David Diamond. In 2018, they toured BC and Alberta with the production. In 2019, Madeline was awarded a STORYHIVE Indigenous Storyteller Edition grant to make their film “q’sapi times”. They were also selected to be a TEDx speaker at Kelowna’s TEDxYouth @ DoyleAve. In 2020, Madeline painted their first mural “Chief Skemxist” in the town of Keremeos. Madeline Terbasket is re-imagining traditional stories with their physical comedy, queerness and vulnerability. In their performance, they will be telling some Coyote and Animal People stories!

Madeline’s Coyote Stories video will be available to view on our website on Saturday September 25th at 7:00 pm.
