Shocking. Ripped open. Raw. Emerging and established Indigenous writers from around the world present their latest works. Care to dance?

Weesageechak Festival has been the starting point for numerous renowned writers including Dora Award-winning Tara Beagan and new playwright-in-residence, Spy Denomme-Welsh.
