Upintheair Theatre  Presents a Reading of Tai Amy Guaman’s 

You Used to Call Me Marie

Playwright: Tai Amy Grauman

Playwright: Tai Amy Grauman

A timeless Metis love story.

"You Used to Call me Marie..." follows two souls in six different Metis love stories at six different distinct periods in history. Moving through different lives, we watch Iskwewo and Napew before and after the creation of Treaty 6. We watch the emergence of the Metis nations across the plains and the robust colonization that arises from the fur trade. Beginning in a creation story and ending in the present, "You used to call me Marie..." shares the love, the loss and the fight of Treaty 6's Metis women. Through alternate forms of theatrical structure and five different languages, the piece explores ancestor’s history and the ways in which a young Metis woman inherits trauma from the matriarchs in the family.
