Where the Blood Mixes ()

Produced by

Native Earth Performing Arts and Soulpepper Theatre Company

Playwright: Kevin Loring
Director: Jani Lauzon


May 26th, 2022 – June 26th, 2022


A place in the heart where a father and daughter meet.

Where the Blood Mixes takes us to the place where the rivers meet, to the heart of a family. After decades apart, Christine returns to her First Nations community to reconnect with her father. Her return provokes his memories of the Residential School system and together they must confront that legacy and its effect on their family. With beautiful heart and great humour, this is a celebration of resilience and the healing power of stories. (
