Upintheair Theatre Presents Pandemic Theatre's West Coast Premiere
The Only Good Indian
‘I know you'll stand in solidarity with me, but how close are you willing to stand?’
Part lecture, part meditation, and part threat, The Only Good Indian takes a radical look at where our similarities begin and where they end. Each night a different performer straps themselves into a suicide vest – and struggles to rationalize to the audience such an “irrational” decision.
Created by 2017 Siminovitch Prize nominee Donna-Michelle St. Bernard, 2015 Governor General’s Award nominee Tom Arthur Davis, and 2017 Ken McDougall Award winner Jivesh Parasram. Each incarnation of The Only Good Indian recruits a local artist to step into the radical headspace of a suicide bomber.
