…from the Artistic Director

A new year, and a new production of this beautiful play by Yvette Nolan—playwright, director, dramaturg, actor and educator. She has contributed greatly to the creation, performance and dissemination of Indigenous theatre in this country—and is one of the most wonderful, vibrant and positive human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The Unplugging premiered in 2012, and has only become more pertinent in succeeding years, dealing as it does with ageism, gender inequality, and our over-reliance on technology. The play proves especially prescient as our governments are recognizing the need to turn to Indigenous communities to help address the conservation of our environment—from forests to lakes, from whooping cranes to killer whales.

Bringing this award-winning play to life on our stage is a remarkable group of artists. Director Reneltta Arluk was a powerful force as Emily Dictionary in our production of Tomson Highway’s The Rez Sisters. Lois Anderson—absent from this stage for far too long—directed the first production of The Unplugging at the Arts Club Theatre. She is joined onstage by Winnipeg actress Marsha Knight, and čačumḥi – aaron wells, who has been very busy since graduating from Victoria’s Canadian College of Performing Arts. Those who were lucky enough to watch our online presentation of the Manitoba Theatre Centre’s filmed production of Tomson Highway’s musical The (Post) Mistress will recognize Krystal Pederson—our onstage musician, composer and sound designer—who was so sublime in the title role.

I am thrilled to be presenting this play on our stage. The Unplugging is filled with humanity, humour, and hope, as Yvette Nolan generously encourages us to open ourselves to the Indigenous wisdom that has been passed down through generations.

with all best wishes—


…from the Executive Director

As I listened to the first read of The Unplugging, I was taken back to 2015 when Native Earth was a co-producer of the Toronto production. I found myself thinking of the differences in how audiences responded to the play eight years and several provinces apart.

I was struck this time by the nuance of the ideas which appeared to jump out so much more to the broader audience. In part because Indigenous work is now so much more common on our stages. The worlds created by Indigenous playwrights reflect realities that are far better known. The reverence or empathic distance is far less than it was eight years ago. Perhaps also in BC, the conversation around the climate crisis is so much more advanced.

Reframing “value” is necessary to any society during a crisis—be it medical, socio-political, or environmental. Questioning values is critical to any progressive society. Eight years later The Unplugging still challenges us. But the context now deepens the questions we ask ourselves.


Director’s Notes

Delving deep into this story of two old women in the bush is one of complex simplicity. We meet these two women, Elena and Bern. One Indigenous and one non-Indigenous. Different lived experiences but the same outcome of being expelled from their apocalyptic community. We then watch a world unfold in their discovered cabin through story and personal experiences and the arrival of a younger Indigenous man, Seamus. As they continue to learn from each other we begin to see ourselves in their conversations. Interwoven with live music and moon poetry The Unplugging reveals vulnerabilities in these relationships and asks us to be hopeful in our future of reparation too.

Building story is a humble gift to be given as a director. I appreciate deeply the support that the Belfry Theatre has given for this production to explore land, connect with the community, and have a longer rehearsal period for us to discover this world. Yvette Nolan’s The Unplugging is one of my favourite plays because it allows all the creative team to infuse their own imagination into what this world could be. For me, it is about reparation and generousity. Humour and circumstance. All good reasons to come together, building community through story and song. Mahsi cho / Quyanainni.

About the Belfry

The Belfry Theatre is on the land of the Lək̓ʷəŋən People, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. The Lək̓ʷəŋən people have been keepers of this land for millennia and we offer our respect and gratitude for our uninvited presence on their territory.

These lands are within the disputed Douglas Treaties territories, treaties that were negotiated verbally, signed to blank pieces of paper by the Indigenous leaders and then had text added by the colonial government. The colonial perspective on the treaty is one of a sale of land, while the Indigenous perspective is a sharing of territory.

The Songhees are members of the Te’mexw Treaty Association seeking a modern treaty with the Crown on their rights, territory and self-government.

The Belfry Theatre is a registered Canadian charity, 11921 5549 RR0001.

The Belfry Theatre is a member of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, Destination Greater Victoria, and the Professional Arts Alliance of Greater Victoria.

čačumḥi – aaron wells (he/they) Seamus

ʔuukłaas čačumḥi aaron wells ʔuukłaasƛa—my name is chah-chum-hi, aaron wells is what I am also called. I come from the ʔiiḥatis tribe (Zeballos) of the nuučan̓uł nation and the lax kw’alaams tribe (Port Simpson) of the ts’ymsyen nation as well as English settler heritage. I raise my hands in thanks to the Lekwungen speaking peoples of the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations who have been stewards of this land for far longer than we can fathom.

The Belfry’s production of Proud was the first play I saw while I was a student at CCPA, and since then I have been looking forward to this day. I have a small collection of connections to this theatre, so it feels like coming home. My first Belfry appearance was a livestream presentation of HIV in My Day in January 2021. I first saw Reneltta as Emily Dictionary in the Belfry’s production of The Rez Sisters, and have had the privilege of working with her on and off since graduating in 2016. I want to thank her for bringing me home. English words cannot describe how elated I feel so: čumqƛsiš luu’am guudl s’ygoy’n ƛeekoo ƛeekoo.

Recent works include: The Breathing Hole (NAC English Theatre and Indigenous Theatre), Pawâkan Macbeth (Akpik Theatre), They Call me Princess (Globe Theatre), Children of God (Segal Centre), The Coyotes, The Nutcracker (Caravan Farm Theatre), and The Unplugging (Gwaandak Theatre). Čuu

Krystle will be sound designing over the next six months, working on developing her skills as a composer/designer, and is excited about kicking off this learning experience here in beautiful Victoria. Krystle hopes you enjoy the show and is excited to be back on the stage for this amazing production. Kinanâskomitin (thank you).
