In partnership with Native Earth Performing Art’s Weesageechak Begins to Dance Festival, NWIA presented Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue by Gloria Miguel with Steve Elm in November 2014 Aki Theatre in Toronto.
Tu Tu Kapsus, a Kuna woman, comes down from the stars to land in the Brooklyn of the 1920’s. Through her journey, she rediscovers the influences that shaped her life and recounts stories of her daily life as a “senior” in our culture. Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue is Gloria Miguel’s humorous and poignant look at being an Elder in her community and the treatment of Elders in our society. (Originally produced and created by Spiderwoman Theater.)
