…from the Artistic Director

Welcome to a new season at the Belfry.

I want to express my gratitude to you—our patrons— for being here right now, for returning after the shutdown, for helping us stay afloat, and for making it so clear that the arts—including theatre—and this theatre— are important to you, and a valuable part of your life. This moment in history has brought into sharp focus the need we all have for humanity and community—which together define theatre: human stories onstage, with our neighbours seated around us.

One of my reasons for inviting the wonderful Jani Lauzon to direct Yaga, was the play’s celebration of female empowerment—which seems to align with the strength of the matriarch in Indigenous culture. Jani then brilliantly conceived a production that brings together Indigenous and Ukrainian artists—honouring the Slavic roots of the Baba Yaga myth. This is a timely and beautiful collaboration between artists—both onstage and on the design team.

A member of Victoria’s Ukrainian Canadian community shared with me the long history of Indigenous and Ukrainian relations: when Ukrainian settlers first came to Canada, they were spurned by other settlers, but the Indigenous nations welcomed them. They guided them and helped them through the harsh winters. As a sign of gratitude, the Ukrainians gifted the Indigenous people colourful scarves— “babushkas.” The Kokum scarf has been incorporated into First Nations’ culture across the country—and is a sign of solidarity between the two communities.

Please welcome these wonderful artists from both communities—and please sit on the edge of your seat for Kat Sandler’s clever and powerful play—!

Thank you again—

Michael Shamata

…from the Executive Director

I realized that I have now completed a full season at the Belfry. All the staff at the Belfry have been so welcoming and have made my transition to this city seamless. I feel delightedly and completely at home. The Belfry staff, volunteers, and board have created such a sense of broad community that it deepens my immediate sense of belonging.

I am glad too, for you—our generous and inquisitive audience. Welcome back to another wonderful season at the Belfry. I am delighted that you have been able to join us this year. For some of you this is part of your lives, and for others it may well be the first time attending. I hope all of you enjoy the shows and feel as much at home here at the Belfry, as I do.

I am so profoundly glad that I made the move to Victoria.

Isaac Thomas

Director’s Notes

As I write, we are just beginning rehearsals. Much will be discovered in the rehearsal room. What I do know is that Yaga has been described as an ogress, a witch, and a villain to be feared. But early history suggests she lives on the crossroads of consciousness, that her archetype is a shaman who may help or hinder: offering comprehension, not comfort. Her persona changed when religion and patriarchy was adopted, and the old pagan deities were persecuted. While reading Yaga, I had been contemplating Joseph Campbell’s theory of diffusion: when iconography is similar between cultures. While his theory has been contested, I began to contemplate what the connection between Indigenous and Ukrainian cultures may be: the iconology of Yaga. How do these two cultures perceive medicine women? Certainly, there is a shared experience of navigating oppression and genocide. I am honoured that these amazing Indigenous and Ukrainian artists are interested in this unique journey and am excited to be bringing this funny and profound play to a Victoria audience, with our own special twist.
Jani Lauzon

Diana Budiachenko – Directing Intern & Cultural Advisor

I am an emerging theatre director from Ukraine who has chosen Canada as my home due to the current conflict with Russia. My training includes a Masters in Performing Arts with a specialization in directing from the Kyiv University of Culture. These studies focused on metaphorical direction—a style which I pursued under my mentor, Director Valeriy Patsunov of the Golden Gate Theatre in Kyiv. My aesthetic also combines dramaturgy, poetry, musicality, and vivid scenery as key aspects of my metaphorical style.

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.
