TH'OWXIYA: THE HUNGRY FEAST DISH

Happening in the Lyric Theatre

"When you take something from the earth, you must give something back." Indigenous storytellers spin a tale from the Kwantlen First Nations Village of Squa’lets, about Th’owxiya, an old and powerful spirit that inhabits a feast dish. Her dish holds beautiful foods from around the world but careful, stealing from her is dangerous business because Th'owxiya has developed a taste for children. When Th’owxiya catches a hungry mouse, Kw'atel, stealing a piece of cheese from her mouth she demands two child spirits be brought for her to eat or else, she will eat Kw'atel's whole family.
