Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish

A production by Axis Theatre

Children’s Theatre
October 7 

The enchanting tale of Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish, will come to life at the Chester Playhouse, immersing audiences of all ages in a captivating world of Indigenous folklore.

Indigenous Storytellers spin the Kwantlen First Nation tale of Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish. The tale follows a sly Mouse (Kw’at’el) who is caught stealing cheese from this feast dish. To appease an angry Th’owxiya (“tho-wox-eeya”), Kw’at’el embarks on a journey to find two children for the ogress to eat, or else!

Enjoy traditional Coast Salish and Sto:lo music, masks, and imagery while learning how Raven (Sqeweqs), Bear (Spa:th), and Sasquatch (Sasq’ets) trick a hungry spirit and save Kw’at’el and their family from becoming the feast!

Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish takes inspiration from Hansel and Gretel and the First Nations story of The Wild Woman of the Woods.

“What makes Th’owxiya: The Hungry Feast Dish truly unforgettable is its engaging story steeped in tradition.”

 -Mark Robbins, Vancouver Presents
